Audiology/Hearing Science Research Travel Award (ARTA)
Interested in research and attending the ASHA Convention? Apply for the ARTA, which opens April 1!
Past awardees have said
- "My favorite part of the ARTA program was getting the chance to meet and talk to other PhD students who share my interests in audiology. Building connections with others who are close to my stage in their programs will be mutually beneficial in the future, and it's helpful to hear that other students are having similar experiences in their own programs."
- "I really enjoyed getting to spend time with ASHA leaders."
- "One of the best things about the ARTA was the knowledge gained about ASHA resources and all of the required events at which we were able to network with peers and current professionals."
- "I found it very helpful to hear about the career paths of other professionals, especially how some were able to gain experience in both clinical and research settings."
