ASHA invites graduate students and emerging scientists interested in research careers to apply for a 2017 Research Mentoring-Pair Travel Award (RMPTA). This award, which provides convention registration and stipends, is given in conjunction with the research symposium held at the ASHA Convention in Los Angeles. Applications are due July 1.
Symposium
Helen Tager-Flusberg (Boston University) is coordinating the 2017 symposium, “Advances in Autism Research: From Learning Mechanisms to Novel Interventions,” which will take place Saturday, Nov. 11.
Invited presenters include Sudha Arunachalam, Boston University; Jana Iverson, University of Pittsburgh; Connie Kasari, University of California, Los Angeles; Letitia Naigles, University of Connecticut; Susan Ellis Weismer, University of Wisconsin-Madison; and Amy Wetherby, Florida State University.
All convention-goers may attend; no tickets are required.
Travel award
Through the RMPTA, emerging scientists identify a more experienced investigator, and together they apply as a mentor-protégé pair. Accepted pairs receive waived convention registration fees and a stipend ($750/protégé, $250/mentor). The pairs attend the research symposium, have the opportunity to network with the invited speakers, and take part in pre- and post-convention activities, such as conducting a mentored review of a symposium-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.
