Nature of the Competition
The American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation (ASHFoundation), in conjunction with the Acoustical Society of America (ASA), invites new researchers to submit proposals in competition for one $10,000 grant underwritten by an endowment fund in memory of the late Dennis Klatt, noted researcher and scientist in the area of speech communication. Until his death in 1989, Dr. Klatt conducted research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on the acoustic properties of speech production and perception.
The Speech Science Research Grant is designed to further research activities of new investigators and to promulgate Dr. Klatt's work. It can be used to initiate new research or supplement an existing research study. Funds may be requested for a variety of purposes; for example, equipment, subjects, research assistants, or research-related travel.
The research grant recipient will be announced at the 2016 ASHA Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and at a future meeting of the Acoustical Society of America. View past Speech Science Research Grant recipients.
