Pathways
This entry-level program helps clinically trained early-career researchers to develop strong foundations for independent research careers. No prior grant-writing experience is required. The program was established with support of a U24 grant from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD).
The year-long program begins June 17–18, 2019, with a conference at ASHA’s national office in Rockville, Maryland. Mentors will provide information on designing a five-year career plan, building a publication record, identifying early-career funding mechanisms and other topics. Mentors will continue to work individually with their protégés to develop and accomplish year-long goals.
Surveys of 2013–2015 participants indicate that within three years of attending the conference, 93 percent of respondents published at least one manuscript in a peer-reviewed journal, 81 percent applied for research funding, and 52 percent were awarded research funding.
Lessons for Success
This program prepares early-career researchers to compete successfully for federal research funding. Prior submission of an extramural research grant is required; additional requirements may apply.
At an April 29–May 1, 2019, meeting at ASHA’s national office, experienced researchers will provide intensive training on the grantsmanship skills and professional competencies needed to succeed in a research career. The program of lectures, mock reviews, roundtable discussions and small-group sessions is supported by an NIDCD R13 grant.
Surveys of 2013–2016 participants indicate that, within two years of participating in the program, 85 percent of respondents applied for research funding and 56 percent secured it. Five years after participating in the program, 98 percent of 2010–2013 survey respondents continued to hold an academic or research position, and 63 percent of those who submitted grants to NIDCD were awarded them.
