ASHA Convention Student Research Travel Award (SRTA)


To highlight the research activities of student scientists and encourage careers in science and research, ASHA awards students who are first authors of papers that are top-rated across the Convention topic areas by the Convention Program Committee.

Award recipients are recognized at the Researcher-Academic Town Meeting and receive a $500 stipend and complimentary ASHA Convention registration. Stipends are disbursed post-Convention.
