American Speech-Language-Hearing Association

Research Mentoring-Pair Travel Award (RMPTA) Recipients

The Research Symposium aims to bring together clinicians and researchers at ASHA's Annual Convention, in order to discuss current research that has important implications for the study of communication processes and disorders. Each year's symposium focuses on a specific research theme. Research is presented by invited speakers who are experts in their fields. The Research Mentoring-Pair Travel Award (RMPTA) is offered in conjunction with this program, in order to provide a research mentoring experience to students who show promise as emerging scientists. This award provides $1,000 to mentor-protégé pairs, intended to offset some of the cost of attending the Symposium (and Annual ASHA Convention).
