T35 Short-Term Research Training Program for AuD Students
For audiology students with interest in research, the T35 short-term research training program for AuD students provides unique access to mentorship, resources, opportunities, and support as you explore every aspect of the research process. Funded by the National Institute for Deafness and other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), this three-month training program culminates in a poster presentation at the annual American Auditory Society (AAS) meeting. T35 research institutions include Boys Town National Research Hospital (Omaha, NE), the National Center for Rehabilitative Auditory Research (Portland, OR), and  Vanderbilt University (Nashville, TN). Follow the above links for additional information on applying; 2020 application deadline is January 15, 2020. 

Summer Internship Opportunity at NASA-Johnson Space Center
Applications can be submitted through  NASA’s One Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI) website for the "Data Management and Analysis of Hearing Assessments and Otoacoustic Emissions Measured Before and During Space Flight" internship. NASA funds have not yet been officially released for this internship yet, but (when approved) this internship will offer a salary, which will be posted later. Please check the website for additional details and the most up-to-date information. This is a great internship opportunity for both undergraduate and graduate students, with preference given to AuD students.

NIDCD Research Dissertation Fellowship for AuD Audiologists (F32)
A new funding opportunity for a postdoctoral fellowship that will allow AuD audiologists to complete a research doctorate (i.e. PhD) in biomedical sciences.

NIH/NIDCD: The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), conducts and supports research in the normal and disordered processes of hearing, balance, taste, smell, voice, speech, and language. It does this through a program of grants and contracts in basic, clinical, and translational research. NIDCD-supported research has made important contributions to the body of knowledge needed to help people with communication disorders and to advance our understanding of all aspects of human communication. The NIDCD helps scientists at all stages of their careers.

The National Institutes of Health intends to invest approximately $60 million over the next five years in the NIH Director's Early Independence Award (EIA) program to help junior investigators leapfrog over traditional post-doctoral training and move into independent academic positions at U.S. institutions, directly upon completion of their graduate research degrees.
