General Audiology/Hearing Science
Student Research Forum (SRF) Awards – Each year, five student recipients present their research findings at the American Academy of Audiology Annual Conference and receive a $500 award from the Foundation. The SRF is a long-standing success story for all involved, especially the student presenters and attendees, and would not be possible without funding by the American Academy of Audiology (AAAF) and an underwriting grant from Plural Publishing, Inc. Each year, the SRF awardees are selected though a rigorous review process from a competitive pool of exciting student research from across the country. The Annaul Conference Research Podiums and Student Research Forum sub-committee select the best and brightest applicants for a chance to present their research at a podium presentation that provides the students with the opportunity to polish their public speaking skills and share their teams’ research.
