Subject Areas: Speech Language Pathology, Communication Disorders

The American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation (ASHFoundation) invites investigators to submit proposals in competition for up to four grants, of $50,000 to $75,000 each, to support clinical research studies over a one- or two-year period. These research grants are intended to encourage research that will impact the delivery of services to individuals with communication disorders. Research should directly advance our knowledge of the efficacy of treatment and assessment practices in speech-language pathology and audiology, or investigate the implementation of evidence into practice. This competition is designed to build capacity within the discipline for investigators to develop and evaluate evidence-based practices.

Please see the sponsor's website for full application details.

Application Details:

Priority will be given to proposals investigating promising approaches that have potential for improving the everyday functioning of individuals with, or at-risk for, communication and related impairments. The research grants are intended to support new research ideas and directions for the discipline. Preference will be given to studies that are likely to progress to future large-scale studies with the potential to compete for federal funding.

The complete proposal must be submitted electronically as ONE PDF file containing all required sections. The online submission system will close at 11:59 p.m. ET on April 25, 2016.


NOTE: All Letters of Intent and Full Applications must be processed through Research Development & Services for institutional approval. Requests for Institutional approvals should be received no less than 3 days prior to the posted Sponsor deadline. A ROLA Proposal (bearing applicant, Chair and Dean electronic approvals) is required for each submission.
