In 2016, ASHA marks the 12th year for two mentored teaching and research awards: one for junior-level faculty looking to advance their careers and one for undergraduate and graduate students considering a PhD and faculty-researcher career.
Both programs—Advancing Academic-Research Career Award (AARC) and Students Preparing for Academic and Research Careers Award (SPARC)—require applicants to submit proposals that identify mentored teaching and research activities designed to enhance their career development. Students and faculty in any of the speech, language or hearing sciences are eligible to apply. The deadline is April 15.
AARC
As part of ASHA’s ongoing efforts to address the PhD shortage through faculty retention, the 10 annual AARC awards foster the career development of junior-level communication sciences and disorders faculty. Each $5,000 award enables the recipient to work with at least one research mentor and one teaching mentor on specific activities over 18 months.
Of the 55 faculty members who received their awards more than three years ago, 95 percent remain in academic positions and 76 percent have been promoted to the level of associate professor or higher.
SPARC
SPARC encourages student interest in pursuing a PhD and an academic career. The program grants up to 11 awards of $1,000 each to graduate students and junior or senior undergraduates. Each recipient works with a faculty mentor to design a teaching and research plan that provides insight into faculty roles and responsibilities.
Faculty members have proven to be the greatest ambassadors for the SPARC program, as they recognize the potential of standout students interested in the science behind the discipline.
