American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Invites Proposals for Projects With Multicultural Focus

The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association recognizes the importance of acknowledging and appropriately responding to cultural and linguistic influences across the speech-language-hearing discipline.

To advance that mission, the association is currently accepting proposals with a multicultural focus that address cultural and linguistic diversity issues related to professionals and persons with communications disorders and differences. Multicultural focus, as defined by the association, includes issues dealing with race, ethnicity, language, gender or gender identification, age, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and ability. The association has a particular interest in proposals that respond to one of the two objectives laid out by its Strategic Pathway to Excellence: 1) increase the diversity of the membership, 2) and/or increase ASHA members’ cultural competence.

Grants of up to $15,000 will be awarded through the program, with the average award for individuals ranging between $7,000 and $10,000.

Eligible applicants include clinical and/or school-based speech, language, and hearing programs; university programs; state speech, language, and hearing associations; and related professional organizations. In addition, an ASHA member must serve as director of the project.

See the ASHA website for additional information, application instructions, and a list of previously funded projects.

Deadline: May 3, 2019
