Research Mentoring-Pair Travel Award
The Research Mentoring-Pair Travel Award Program (RMPTA) is designed to foster the professional development of students and emerging scientists who have expressed an interest in research careers in communication sciences and disorders. RMPTA is given in conjunction with the Research Symposium held at the annual ASHA Convention. Both RMPTA and the Symposium are co-sponsored by ASHA and the NIDCD, through an R13 grant awarded to ASHA.
Up to five travel awards of $1,000 each will be granted to eligible mentor-protégé pairs (protégé=$750; mentor=$250). Early-rate Convention registration fees will also be covered for both the protégé and mentor. This award is intended to help defray the cost of attending the Symposium.
Protégés must be (a) a current student at the master's, AuD, or PhD level, (b) a postdoctoral fellow, or (c) a junior level faculty member (less than six years teaching/research experience in a tenure-track position or below the level of associate professor).
Special consideration will be given to individuals whose research or research interests are (a) relevant to the current year's Symposium topic, (b) interdisciplinary in nature, (c) translational in nature, or (d) related to issues of cultural or linguistic diversity.
Protégés must arrange to be mentored by an experienced investigator affiliated with an academic or clinical research environment. Your mentor may be affiliated with your university or based elsewhere, but you must be able to extend a relationship with your mentor beyond the Symposium.
The 2013 ASHA Convention will be held from November 14–16, 2013, in Chicago, Illinois.
Attend the Research Symposium on Saturday, November 16, 2013.
How to Apply
Both protégés and mentors will each need to complete a separate RMPTA online application form and upload documents through the online application system
Deadline for receipt of the completed application packet is 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday, July 1, 2013.

American Hearing Research Foundation Regular Grants
The American Hearing Research Foundation funds an average of five research grants each year that investigate various aspects of hearing and balance disorders related to the inner ear. Grants are for $20,000 for one year of research. Priority is given to investigators early in their careers who need seed funds to generate results and data that can be used to support later application for larger grants (i.e., NIH grants) in the future.
AHRF Regular Grants
AHRF grant proposals are due on August 1 of the year before funding begins in January. Proposals are reviewed by the AHRF Research Committee in mid-October and applicants are notified as to the status of their grants immediately. The AHRF uses a five point scale for scoring grants, with one being the highest score and 5 the lowest.
Grant proposals should relate to the hearing or balance functions of the ear. Both basic and clinical studies may be proposed that investigates aspects of the auditory and vestibular systems including but not limited to genetics, neurotology, anatomy, auditory processing, molecular and cellular biology, therapeutic studies, and investigations of current or experimental devices (i.e. cochlear implants).
Applicants should hold the MD, PhD or equivalent degree(s) and be associated with a university or hospital in the United States.
Grant recipients need to submit progress reports by April 1. Reports may be included on our website and/or newsletter. Recipients also must notify the AHRF in advance of any publication of their research funded by the AHRF. Recipients should also notify the AHRF if any aspect of their funded research is reported in the media. It is our goal to highlight research results and publications.
Recipients are also required to submit a final report of their research by the end of January after the completion of their funded year of research.
Grant funds may only be used for direct costs, including salaries of technical and supporting staff, equipment related to the research, and supplies. Funding may not be sued for salary of the principle investigator, travel or conference attendance, or educational costs. No-cost extensions of research past the funded year is granted based on approval of the Research Committee.

Student Academy of Audiology Special Olympics Healthy Hearing Chapter Participation Grants
Two Application Deadlines Annually: October 1 and February 1
In 2010, the Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) officially announced its relationship with the Special Olympics Healthy Hearing (SOHH) program as a national service project. The SAA is encouraging university chapter participation in SOHH programs throughout the country to support the goals of
1) increasing the number of student volunteers involved with hearing screenings and 2) improving the audiologic follow-up of athletes after the games.
The American Academy of Audiology Foundation SAA Chapter Participation Grants program provides funding that enables students from SAA chapters to serve as volunteers at SOHH events at the local, regional, and state levels. These grants supplement chapter fundraising activities and partially cover costs of travel and supplies.
Only SAA chapters may apply for funding; no awards will be made to individual students.
Chapters may apply for funding for more than one SOHH event (i.e.: for both local and state events), but the maximum chapter grant is $250.00 per year.
