Projects on Multicultural Activities
ASHA recognizes the value of supporting the infusion of multiculturalism into our clinical, education and professional programs, and the activities of allied/related associations and organizations. In response—beginning in 1996—ASHA has been allocating funds, annually, for projects on multicultural activities. Multiculturalism is defined to include factors such as race, ethnicity, national origin, culture, language, dialect, gender, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religion, and ability. Proposals are evaluated each year by a Review Panel (see list of Panel members at the end of each year's projects' descriptions). In addition to the Review Panels' numerical ratings and critical comments, consideration will be given to factors such as the project's similarity to previously funded projects, overlap with other Association efforts, area(s) of practice, timeliness, projected impact, focus on a specific cultural or linguistic population, projected return on investment, and ability to respond to members' needs.
Submission period is closed. Proposals receiving funding will be announced by August 2014.
