Each year the American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation (ASHF) offers several scholarship and grant competitions to graduate students and new researchers in the field of communication sciences and disorders.
Up to ten Graduate Student Scholarships are available annually for master’s or doctoral level students studying audiology or speech language pathology.
Of the ten scholarships, one gives priority to a student with a disability, one gives priority to an international student studying in the US, and one gives priority to a US citizen who is a member of an ethnic or racial minority group.
The scholarships range between $2,000 and $4,000.
Two $2,000 Student Research Grants are available annually to master’s and doctoral students.
One is for a one-year study in Early Childhood Language Development, and the other is for a one-year study in Clinical or Rehabilitative Audiology.
Up to seven $5,000 New Investigator Research Grants are available each year to individuals who have received their latest degree (master’s or doctoral level) in communication sciences and disorders within the last five years and are starting their research careers.
The one-year proposal must be for research to be initiated.
One $5,000 Speech Science Research Grant is available in alternate years to an individual who has completed a doctoral degree within the last five years and who proposes a one-year study in the area of speech science.
