ASHA invites graduate students and early-career scientists interested in research careers to apply for a 2018 Research Mentoring-Pair Travel Award (RMPTA). This award, which provides convention registration and stipends, is given in conjunction with the Nov. 17 Research Symposium on neuroplasticity research and aphasia at the ASHA Convention in Boston. Applications are due July 1.
Travel Award
Through the RMPTA, emerging scientists identify a more experienced investigator, and they apply together as a mentor-protégé pair for the award. The pairs attend the symposium, 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 partly funded by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders. For information on eligibility and award requirements, visit www.asha.org/students/RMPTAward or contact research@asha.org.
Symposium
Swathi Kiran of Boston University is coordinating the 2018 Symposium, “Advances in Neuroplasticity Research: Language Recovery in Aphasia.” Other invited presenters include Julius Fridriksson (University of South Carolina), Cindy Thompson (Northwestern University), Peter Turkeltaub (Georgetown University Medical Center) and Stephen Wilson (Vanderbilt University Medical Center).
All convention attendees may attend; no tickets are required.
