We support priority research in communication sciences and disorders, which leads to advances in treatment and new developments, such as the use of technology in assessment and intervention. ASHFoundation grants help launch research careers and are often instrumental in securing additional funding from other sources for continued research efforts.
The ASHFoundation nurtures the best and brightest students in the discipline. These students will eventually pursue careers in clinics, schools, research labs, higher education, and private practice, ensuring continued excellence in the field.
Clinical Achievement Awards
The ASHFoundation recognizes that outstanding clinical achievement will lead to innovation in science and practice, and we support the work of clinicians who excel.
Special Project Grants
The ASHFoundation also funds special initiatives and projects. We often partner with corporations to develop or improve a new device, treatment program, or technology. Past partners include Microsoft, IBM, Apple Computer, and The Psychological Corporation. The ASHFoundation welcomes inquiries and proposals regarding special initiatives.
