American Speech-Language-Hearing Association 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.
RMPTA awardees (both protégés and mentors) receive an ASHA Convention registration fee waiver.
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 2014 ASHA Convention will be held November 20–22, in Orlando, Florida.
Attend the Research Symposium on Saturday, November 22, 2014.
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, Tuesday, July 1, 2014.
Applicants will be notified of the status of their application in August. Awards will be disbursed post-Convention.

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.

You are not eligible to apply if you are enrolled in a PhD program or if you already have a PhD degree. The goal of the SPARC award is to foster students' interest in the pursuit of a PhD education and a career in academia.
