American Neurotology Society/American Academy of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery Foundation Herbert Silverstein Otology/Neurotology Research Award
The purpose of this award, which is jointly sponsored by the AAO-HNS Foundation and the American Neurotology Society, is to support a clinical or translational research project focused on diseases, disorders, or conditions of the peripheral or central auditory and/or vestibular system among new full-time academic surgeons. The award is intended as a preliminary step in clinical investigator career development and is expected to facilitate the recipient’s preparation of a more comprehensive individualized research plan suitable for submission to the National Institutes of Health or comparable funding agency.
Applicants must be physicians in the United States or Canada with demonstrated potential for excellence in research and teaching and serious commitment to an academic research career in otology or neurotology. Priority will be given to fellows or junior faculty, who have completed residencies or fellowships within four years of the application receipt date, although otolaryngology-head and neck surgery residents are eligible. All candidates must be sponsored by the Chair of his/her Division or Department and by an official representative of the institution which would administer the Award and in whose name the application is formally submitted. Former ANS, AOS, or Foundation research grant recipients are eligible to compete for the Silverstein Award. Individuals who have already competed successfully for independent research grant support from a private or Federal funding agency are ineligible for this Award.
Research supported by this award should be specifically directed toward the pathophysiology, diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of auditory and/or vestibular disease, and must be either clinical/translational or basic with a clear and demonstrable clinical relevance. While not specifically required, proposals which are focused on otosclerosis or Meniere’s disease, and/or which aim to introduce new knowledge and methodology from other disciplines to research in otology or neurotology, or which demonstrate collaborative effort with members of other related disciplines are encouraged. Projects must be designed so as to yield useful information within the period of award, but priority will be given to projects that are also innovative with promise to develop into new long-range or expanded research programs capable of attracting funding from other sources. Applications must be accompanied by a letter of support from the applicant’s Department Chair verifying that the applicant will be permitted to devote an appropriate amount of time to the conduct and timely completion of the proposed research project. Applicants must obtain letters of support/understanding from all key personnel on the project.
1. Amount: $25,000 maximum ($12,500 per year)
2. Period: 24 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; patient 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. If university policy stipulates that a portion of this very modest award must go toward institutional indirect costs, no more than ten percent (10%) of the total costs may be applied for indirect costs.
4. Review: Applications will be reviewed by members and ad hoc reviewers of the AAO-HNS Foundation CORE Study Section Subcommittee. Recommendations for funding must be approved by the AAO-HNS Foundation Board of Directors.
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 Herbert Silverstein Otology/Neurotology Research Award will be announced publicly at the closest 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.

American Hearing Research Foundation Wiley H. Harrison, MD Memorial Research Award
The purpose of this award is to support clinical research projects in otology or neurotology designed to increase understanding of hearing disorders.
Candidates for this award should be physicians (M.D.) at the resident, fellow, or junior faculty stage, or PhD scientists. Previous AHRF or AAO-HNS Foundation research grant recipients are eligible to compete for this grant. However, candidates who have successfully obtained funding from a private or federal funding agency for the same research are ineligible. Candidates who have applied for support of the same research from other funding sources, and who are notified of an award from both another agency and from AHRF must choose only one of the awards.
Research supported by this award should be specifically directed toward the clinical identification, diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of diseases, disorders, or conditions of the ear. While not specifically required, proposals which aim to introduce new knowledge and methodology from other disciplines to research in otology or Neurotology, or which demonstrate collaborative effort with members of other related disciplines are encouraged. Projects must be designed so as to yield useful information within the period of award, but priority will be given to projects that are also innovative with promise to develop into new long-range or expanded research programs capable of attracting funding from other sources.
