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 issues dealing with race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, and disability. 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, funding decisions are made with consideration 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.
The application period is now closed. Proposals receiving funding will be announced by August 2013.
