The American Hearing Research Foundation is inviting applications for its Causes of Sudden Hearing Loss Grant program.
The program is sponsored in part by an individual donor affected by sudden hearing loss, in two instances thirty-eight years apart, who would like to spur investigation in the field. Through the program, grants of up to $40,000 will be awarded in support of proposals to investigate the cause(s) of sudden hearing loss. Both basic and clinical studies that propose to investigate aspects of the auditory system, including but not limited to genetics, neurotology, anatomy, and molecular and cellular biology, will be considered.
To be eligible, applicants must hold an MD, PhD, AuD, or equivalent degree(s) and be associated with a university or hospital in the United States.
See the American Hearing Research Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
