ASHA invites graduate students and emerging scientists interested in research careers to apply for a 2016 Research Mentoring-Pair Travel Award (RMPTA). This award, which provides convention registration and stipends, is given in conjunction with the annual research symposium held at the ASHA convention. Applications are due July 1.
The 2016 symposium, “Advances in Auditory Attention Research: Processing Complex Auditory Stimuli,” will take place Saturday, Nov. 19, in Philadelphia. Invited presenters include Michael Dorman, Arizona State University; Gerald Kidd, Boston University; Karen Helfer, University of Massachusetts-Amherst; Lori Leibold, Boys Town National Research Hospital; Barbara Shinn-Cunningham, Boston University; and Elyse Sussman, Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
All convention attendees are welcome to attend the symposium; no tickets are required. For more information, visit on.asha.org/research-symp.
The RMPTA allows emerging scientists to identify a more experienced investigator and apply together as a mentor-protégé pair. Accepted pairs receive convention registration fee waivers and a $1,000 stipend ($750/protégé and $250/mentor). In addition to attending the symposium, pairs have the opportunity to network with invited scholars and participate in pre- and post-convention activities, such as conducting a mentored review of a symposium presentation-based manuscript for the Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research.
The symposium and its associated travel award are funded in part by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders. For information on eligibility and award requirements, visit on.asha.org/rmpta or contact research@asha.org.
