Call for Applications: Advancing Academic-Research Careers (AARC) Award
The AARC Award is intended to support the academic-research careers of junior-level faculty in the field of communication sciences and disorders (CSD). Unlike a traditional research grant that only focuses on research, the AARC Award funds proposals that include both a teaching and a research component. Up to six awards of $5,000 each will be awarded in 2014.
Two awards will be dedicated to applications that focus on mentored activities related to both the teaching and conduct of clinical practice research. Clinical practice research in CSD is distinct from research aimed primarily at understanding the mechanisms underlying normal or disordered processing. Rather, it refers to research that focuses on the prevention, diagnostics, treatment, implementation, and outcomes measurement of communication, swallowing, and balance disorders. Clinical practice research, due to its applied nature, has the potential to impact clinical practice in the near term. ASHA has expanded funding to include these two additional awards to accelerate the generation of clinical practice research needed to support evidence-based practice.
Applicants work in conjunction with mentors to develop mentored teaching and research plans tailored to the applicant's career stage. The plans—which propose specific teaching and research activities that will be completed under the guidance of the mentors during the 18-month funding period—are submitted as part of the AARC application. Examples of acceptable activities include, but are not limited to
Mentored teaching activities, such as
learn new teaching or mentoring techniques
attend or present at a conference on the scholarship of teaching and learning
lead a mentoring program such as a journal club
incorporate theories of teaching/learning into your own courses
incorporate contemporary technologies (e.g., social media, telepractice) or instrumentation (e.g., fMRI) into course work and student mentoring
develop new curricula or unique learning opportunities (e.g., problem-based learning, interprofessional education, distance learning, or student research opportunities)
Mentored research activities, such as
learn a new research methodology or technique
attend or present at a research conference
participate in a training course on data analysis
train in another research lab
prepare a research manuscript or grant application
conduct a feasibility study or collect pilot data
The following eligibility criteria apply:
research doctoral degree (PhD or equivalent)
full-time tenure or non-tenure track faculty appointment in a CSD department in an academic institution in the United States at the time of disbursement
primary responsibilities include teaching and conducting research
fewer than 6 years of teaching/research experience or status below the level of associate professor
mentoring team composed of at least two mentors—one to support the applicant's teaching plan and one to support the applicant's research plan. (Note: All mentors must have research doctorates; at least one mentor must be a faculty member in a CSD department.)
Application Material Requirements
AARC applicants must complete an online application form and upload PDF documents through the online application system. Please see the application instructions for detailed descriptions of what to include in the following required materials:
mentored teaching plan
mentored research plan
budget proposal for the 18-month funding period
letter of recommendation from each member of the applicant's mentoring team
letter of support from the applicant's department chair (or equivalent)
All application materials must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Time), Thursday, May 15, 2014. Applicants will be notified of the status of their application in August 2014.

Deadline: May 15, 2014.
The goal of the Students Preparing for Academic-Research Careers (SPARC) Award is to foster students' interest in PhD education and academic research careers. Currently, there is a shortage of PhD-level faculty in communication sciences and disorders. Initially developed to address this shortage, this award continues as part of ASHA's commitment to research. The SPARC Award provides opportunities for students to participate in mentored teaching and research activities.
You are eligible to apply if your current education status is:
