For more than forty years, the American Tinnitus Association has helped patients understand and manage the "ringing in their ears" and raised resources for advanced tinnitus research. Since 1971, ATA has contributed nearly $6 million to medical research projects focused on curing tinnitus.
in 2017, ATA will award a grant of up to $50,000 for innovative and high-quality research that substantively contributes to the scientific understanding of tinnitus and advances the search for a cure. The program focuses on providing seed grants for the most innovative areas of tinnitus scientific exploration. Proposals are measured against ATA's "Roadmap for a Cure," a framework for how tinnitus research can best — and most rapidly — be used to achieve a definitive cure for tinnitus.
Scientists, academics, and healthcare professionals affiliated with a nonprofit medical and research institution are eligible to apply.
