Annual Giving Campaign

The ASHFoundation Annual Giving Campaign raises money for the General Fund as well as several special endowment funds. These funds make it possible for the Foundation to:

  • Nurture the best and brightest students to sustain the growth of the discipline and field of communication sciences. The Foundation does this through scholarship awards.
  • Support priority research to advance services for children and adults with speech, language, or hearing disorders. The Foundation awards thousands of dollars in research grants each year.
  • Recognize outstanding clinical achievement that will lead to innovation in science and practice. Since 1983, the Foundation has been proud to honor communication science professionals with special recognition awards.

The Annual Campaign provides donations to sustain the current research and education programs vital to the field of communication disorders. Awards totaling $4,567,120 have supported more than 1,595 doctoral and post-doctoral researchers, graduate students, and outstanding leaders since the ASHFoundation's inception.

However, the ASHFoundation is able to fund only one in seven research proposals received each year and only one of every 25 scholarship applications. With more than 2,000 requests and nearly 300 applications to various funding programs annually, there are many more promising research projects and qualified individuals in need of funding.
