Research is the vital link between audiology's present and its still-to-be-discovered future.
The Academy is proud to support research efforts through scholarships, grants, awards, and through the Academy Research Conference (ARC), which are supported by the American Academy of Audiology Foundation and other sponsors.
The Academy also helps to link researchers with key grant resources and other information that supports their research work.
