Travel Awards

The American Auditory Society is committed to inclusiveness and increasing representation of under-represented minorities. Individuals with a disability (e.g. loss of hearing, vision, or mobility, as well as individuals with a psychiatric or learning disability) and individuals from groups historically under-represented in the biomedical sciences (e.g. African American, American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander, and Latin American) are highly encouraged to apply for travel awards.

Mentored Research and T35 Travel Awards

There are two categories of student travel awards that are made available to the American Auditory Society through funding from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD).  The Mentored Research Poster Presentation Awards ($1000) recognize and promote doctoral (AuD or PhD students in Audiology, Hearing Science, Biomedical Engineering or related fields, or medical students) and post-doctoral (AuD, PhD, or MDs, including residents) mentored research programs by providing an opportunity to present work in a poster format. Applicants will be required to upload a letter of recommendation from their mentor with abstract submission.  T35 Student Awards ($800) are available to AuD students who have participated in research funded by a training grant (T-35) to the participating institution, also funded by the NIDCD.  Students wishing to apply for these awards must complete an abstract submission, checking the appropriate submission category of award sought (Mentored Research Poster Presentation or T35 Poster Presentation) before the abstract submission deadline on November 1.

New Investigator Travel Awards

The New Investigator Travel Award, funded by the American Auditory Society, is intended to provide travel support to new investigators who have completed a doctoral degree (or post-doc training or residency) within the past five years. Applicants with appointments in academic programs should be at junior faculty levels (e.g., instructor, assistant professor).  All applicants must have completed a degree in an area of research falling within the mission of the American Auditory Society.  Applicants must be members in good standing of the AAS. Recipients of this award are required to submit an abstract and related materials for review and, if selected for an award, must present a paper (poster or podium format) at the meeting. Applications will be reviewed competitively and selections made by the Program Abstract Review Committee for the upcoming AAS Conference. New Investigators wishing to apply for this award must complete an abstract submission, checking the appropriate submission category of award sought (New Investigator Poster Presentation or New Investigator Podium Presentation) before the abstract submission deadline on November 1. A Curriculum Vitae / resume, including current sources of funding as well as dates receiving doctoral degree, completion of post-doc, completion of residency, as appropriate, will be required with abstract submission.
