The American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation Board of Trustees approved funding for a new research grant initiative to be offered in 2018.
The new grant will support research projects designed around collaboration between researchers and clinical practitioners to enhance evidence for service delivery. This initiative is an outgrowth of the ASHFoundation’s 2014 Implementation Science Summit and subsequent efforts to increase awareness of the need for implementation research.
The new grant is intended to:
  • Support innovation and facilitate closure of the research-to-practice gap, ultimately improving services to people with communication disorders.

  • Encourage strong, productive collaborations between academic or organization researchers and clinical practitioners.

  • Provide viable funding for early-stage collaborative research that will lead to scale-up studies.

The grant announcement, with specific eligibility criteria and proposal requirements, is scheduled for January 2018. Up to four researcher-practitioner collaboration grants of $35,000 each will be offered.
Stay tuned for announcements about the ASHA Convention session focused on researcher-clinician collaborations and an educational webinar in early 2018 to help applicants prepare for the proposal submission process.
