American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Seeks Applications for AARC Awards

The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association is a national professional, scientific, and credentialing association for audiologists, speech-language pathologists, speech, language, and hearing scientists, audiology and speech-language pathology support personnel, and students.

ASHA's Advancing Academic-Research Careers Award is intended to support the academic research careers of junior-level faculty in the field of communication sciences and disorders. The program funds projects that include both a teaching and a research component.

Recipients work in conjunction with mentors to develop mentored teaching and research plans tailored to the applicant's career stage. The plans — which should propose specific teaching and research activities to be completed under the guidance of the mentors during the eighteen-month funding period — are submitted as part of the AARC application. In support of ASHA's strategic objectives, applications that focus the mentored teaching and/or research component on clinical practice research, implementation science, and interprofessional education and interprofessional practice are particularly encouraged. In 2018, ASHA will award up to ten grants of $5,000 each.  

To be eligible, applicants must have a research doctoral degree (PhD or equivalent); a 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 that include teaching and research; and fewer than six years of teaching/research experience or status below the level of associate professor.

For complete program guidelines, examples of fundable projects, and application instructions, see the ASHA website.
