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.)

Clinical Research Grant for Study in the Field of Hand Surgery
The ASSH and AFSH are committed to excellence in clinical and basic science research. Hand care professionals, industry, and the public value and respect our unsurpassed support of education and scientific investigation, unquestionable academic integrity and fiscal responsibility. We are determined to encourage and fund ingenuity and advancement in our profession.
The American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH) and the American Foundation for Surgery of the Hand (AFSH) have established grant funding to encourage young investigators to perform clinical research studies. It is anticipated that the funding will enable investigators to initiate pilot projects that will lead to subsequent funding from other sources such as the NIH.
Applicants and Proposals
The selection of the research proposals for funding is made by the Research Management Committee with the approval of the Council of the ASSH and the AFSH Board. Selection is based on the merits of the proposal with preference given to new projects for which the grant could serve as seed money for larger grants from the NIH or OREF. Proposals that have already been funded from other sources will not be considered. Awards are made to universities, medical schools, research institutions, or individuals. Grants may be used for salaries of technical and professional assistants, purchase of supplies, or minor pieces of equipment. Grants may not support the personal compensation of investigators, travel or conferences, publication costs, the payment of hospital care for patients under study, the purchase of major pieces of equipment, or any overhead expenses.
In the past, funding has been provided for a range of subjects, including microvascular, tendons, nerves, artificial joints, tissue engineering, biomechanics, rehabilitation, and other related subjects. The standard clinical grants are for two years, and are limited to a maximum of $20,000 with $10,000 in year 1 and another $10,000 installment in year 2.
In order to be eligible for the grant, at least one of the investigators must be a member of the ASSH. Members of the Research Management Committee are not eligible to be the principle investigator, co-PI, or mentor on any AFSH grant application.
If awarded either a basic science or clinical research grant, the recipient is compelled to present at the appropriate Investigators Workshop at the ASSH Annual Meeting before receiving their funds and at least one other time during the duration of the award. The award will not be changed by the content of the presentation at the Investigators Workshop – goal is to mirror pre-dissertation presentations made in universities, namely to improve the work or proposed work. The next workshops will be held September 17, 2014 in Boston, MA. All future meeting dates are posted on our website.
Investigators receiving grants are expected to make a progress report within 12 months following receipt of funds. For two-year grants, second-year funds will not be released until the first-year program report is received. A final report, including a listing of all presentation and publications resulting from the project, must be submitted 24 months after receipt of funds. All funds not used in the study should be returned to the American Foundation for Surgery of the Hand.
Publication and Further Funding
Awardees are encouraged to submit resulting manuscripts to The Journal of Hand Surgery and to present their work, if possible, at the ASSH Annual meeting. In the case of publication in any journal, presenting or citing research funding, credit is to be noted by footnote that the project was supported totally or partially by funds from the American Foundation for Surgery of the Hand. It is requested that a reprint of such publications be made available to the ASSH Research Management Committee Chair for permanent record. Grant applications received from any investigators with delinquent reports will not be reviewed.
The grant application closely mimics the NIH grant format. This is to encourage familiarity with the grant application of the NIH for further funding. Each applicant, funded or unfunded, will receive critiques of the grant from the ASSH Research Management Committee Study Section so that future revisions will be more competitive for extramural funding. The distribution of funded Basic Science and Clinical Research Grants will be up to the discretion of the Research Management Committee.
Applications for the $20,000 clinical grants are due to the ASSH Central Office by the close of business on April 7, 2014. You must email the following:
Your completed grant application form in Microsoft Word format
IRB or IACUC documentation (if applicable)
Letter of support from your department chair or division head. The purpose of this letter is to verify that the researcher will have time (as in time away from clinical practice) and enough resources in addition to the grant to complete the project in a timely fashion.
Email all documentation to: firstname.lastname@example.org
While the grant application form must be in Word format, the supporting documents may be in PDF format.
Questions? Email email@example.com or call (312) 880-1900.
