The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association is the national professional, scientific, and credentialing association for audiologists; speech-language pathologists; speech, language, and hearing scientists; audiology and speech-language pathology support personnel; and students.
The association has issued a Request for Proposals for its Multicultural Activities grants program. The annual program supports projects designed to bring multicultural components to ASHA's clinical, educational, and professional programs and the activities of allied/related associations and organizations.
Projects must have multicultural focus. "Multicultural" is defined to include issues dealing with race, ethnicity, national origin, culture, language, dialect, gender, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religion, and ability. Preference will be given to projects that respond to ASHA's Envisioned Future: 2025 and ASHA's Strategic Pathway to Excellence; advance interprofessional education/interprofessional practice; and/or result in a tangible product, program, resource, etc.
It is expected that the average individual award will rangebetween $7,000 and $10,000, with a maximum of $15,000 for a single grant.
The program is open to any clinical and/or school-based speech, language, and hearing program; university program; state association; and allied and related professional organization. However, an ASHA member must serve as project director.
