The American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation (ASHFoundation) is pleased to announce a new funding competition that will support researchers for one-two year clinical studies with a range of $50,000 to $75,000 per grant. These funds are meant to further the goal of building capacity within the discipline for investigators to develop and evaluate evidence-based practices. These grants are intended to advance the fields knowledge of the efficacy of treatment and assessment practices in audiology and speech-language pathology. 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 ASHFoundation is seeking to support new research ideas and directions for investigators. Encouraged are prospective experiments likely to progress to randomized clinical trials with potential to compete for federal funding. This competition is open to investigators at different stages of their careers for support for efforts ranging from innovative, small scale treatment efficacy studies of practices undergoing development or refinement to preliminary studies of well-developed (e.g., comprehensive treatment manual) treatments to demonstrate feasibility for randomized control trials. Projects proposing to evaluate assessments being developed or adapted to meet the needs for measuring outcomes in clinical trials also will be considered. A unique feature of the grant competition is the type of support options available. Mechanism include 1.) mentored treatment research projects; 2,) independent treatment research projects; or 3.) collaborative treatment research projects.
