2016 Clinical Research Grant
Note: These 2016 guidelines are available to serve as a reference. Research grant guidelines and submission instructions are updated each year. The new guidelines will be
available in early 2017.
Nature of the Competition
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.
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.
These research grants are not intended to provide the investigator with additional or extended support for an existing study already supported through extramural funds. However, proposals will be considered if a new investigator is proposing to join an established research team to develop a treatment efficacy, implementation, or service-delivery study that holds promise for subsequent funding of the investigator.
All research grant recipients will be announced and recognized at the November 2016 ASHA Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
