ANCDS Collaborative Clinical Research Grant Call for Proposals
The primary purpose of the Academy of Neurologic Communication Disorders and Sciences Collaborative Clinical Research Grant (ANCDS-CCRG) award is to encourage collaborative research between two ANCDS members from two different institutions by providing $5,000 to meritorious scientific proposals addressing a clinical research question. The Dean or other signatory authority of both collaborating universities/institutions is encouraged to match the grant from ANCDS ($5,000) with at least $2,500 up to $5,000 each so that the collaborative awardees may receive a total of $10,000 to $15,000 to accomplish their research aims. While a contribution of $5,000 each is preferred, applications with guaranteed institutional support for less than this amount will be considered.
Deadline for receipt of grant applications: No later than 5:00 p.m. EST Monday, April 14, 2014.
