The Mentored Student Awards ($1000) are open to doctoral students conducting research. One must be a student at the time of the abstract submission deadline date in order to quality for this award. T35 Student Awards ($800) are available to AuD students who have participated in research funded by a training grant (T-35) to the participating institution, also funded by the NIDCD.
New Investigator Travel Award
The New Investigator Travel Award is intended to support new investigators who have completed a doctoral degree (or post-doc training or residency) within the past three years and do not have any funds for travel through federal, state, foundation grants/sources or their employer. Applicants with appointments in academic programs should be at junior faculty levels (e.g., instructor, assistant professor). All applicants must have completed a degree in an area of research falling within the mission of the American Auditory Society.
Applicants must be members in good standing of the AAS.
Recipients of this award are required to submit an abstract and related materials for review and, if selected for an award, must present a paper (poster or podium format) at the meeting.
Application submission requirements: Applications will be reviewed competitively and selections made by the Program Abstract Review Committee for the upcoming Annual Meeting of the AAS. The items listed below are required:
• Personal identifying information
• Mailing address and other contact information
• Professional information/affiliations
• Curriculum vitae (CV)/resume including current sources of funding as well as dates receiving doctoral degree, completion of post-doc, completion of residency, as appropriate.

Knowles Hearing Center Collaborative Grant
The purpose of this award is to foster research on hearing and its disorders through collaborations between Fellows of the Knowles Hearing Center at Northwestern University and non-Knowles-Fellow scientists or physicians.
Applicants for this award should be scientists (Ph.D.) or physicians (M.D.) who are not currently affiliated with the Knowles Hearing Center. Previous Knowles Hearing Center or AAO-HNS Foundation research grant recipients are eligible to compete for this grant. However, applicants who have successfully obtained funding from a private or federal funding agency for the same research are ineligible. Applicants who have applied for support for the same research from other funding sources, and who are notified of an award from both another agency and from the Knowles Hearing Center, must choose only one of the awards.
CONDITIONS Applicants for this award must work in collaboration with a Fellow of the Knowles Hearing Center at Northwestern University (for a list of current Knowles Fellows, see http://comm.soc.northwestern.edu/knowles-hearing-center/fellows). The applicant and Knowles Fellow are to act as a team in the development of the application and in the execution of the project. The application must include a description of this team work. Research supported by this award should be specifically directed toward understanding hearing and its disorders. While not specifically required, proposals that aim to introduce new knowledge and methodology from other disciplines to research in hearing are encouraged. Projects must be designed so as to yield useful information within the period of the award, but priority will be given to projects that also are innovative and hold promise to develop into new long-range or expanded research programs capable of attracting funding from other sources.
The grant application must be accompanied by a letter of support from the Chair of the non-Fellow applicant’s academic department. This letter is to indicate a general level of support of the applicant, and to ensure that the department will make time, space, and other resources accessible for completion of the project. Applicants also must obtain letters of support/understanding from all key personnel on the project.
1. Amount: $30,000 maximum
2. Period: 12 months, non-renewable
3. Budget: A detailed budget and budget justification constitute part of the application and will be evaluated as part of the review process. Allowable expenses include consultant fees (e.g., statistician); salary support for research assistants or other technical personnel; computer software or hardware; purchase and maintenance of experimental animals; participant incentive costs; and expenses related to publication of results, exclusive of reprint costs. Funding may not be used to support the applicant’s normal salary during the period of the award. Patient care costs that can be considered within the ordinary and accepted standard of care and which are eligible for third-party payment may not be charged to the grant. Equipment and supplies purchased with this Award become the property of the recipient institution. The Knowles Hearing Center prefers not to pay institutional (indirect) costs for this very modest award; if the institution is unwilling to waive such costs, however, they are limited to no more than 10% of the Total Direct Costs (sum of amounts requested for personnel, consultant costs, equipment, supplies, patient/animal care costs, and other expenses). There must be line-item documentation of the fund allocations between the applicant’s institution and Northwestern University, and the reasons for those allocations must be stated. Proposals in which a portion of the funds remain at Northwestern University are encouraged. Funds allocated to Northwestern University will not be distributed outside of Northwestern University. The Total Costs (direct + indirect) may not exceed $30,000.
4. Review: Applications will be reviewed by members of the Centralized Otolaryngology Research Efforts (CORE) Study Section, composed of Knowles Hearing Center members designated for the Study Section, and members of the AAO-HNSF CORE Study Section Subcommittee. Recommendations for funding of the Knowles Hearing Center Collaborative Grant must be approved by the Knowles Hearing Center.
5. Notification: Letters of notification will be sent in June of the award year. Please do not call the AAO-HNSF office prior to that time to inquire about results.
6. Start Date: The recipient of the Knowles Hearing Center Collaborative Grant will be announced publicly at the AAO-HNS Foundation Annual Meeting immediately following the award. The award may be activated as early as July 1 of the year of award, but no later than January 1 of the following year.
Applications are in a similar format to the National Institutes of Health. All applications must be completed and submitted online through ProposalCENTRAL at https://proposalcentral.altum.com.
LETTER OF INTENT
All applicants must submit a Letter of Intent electronically no later than December 16, 2013.

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.
