Lecture Series

The Foundation supports lectures at the American Academy of Audiology annual conference on topics that are increasingly important in the audiology field and related disciplines.


Jerger Award for Excellence in Student Research

Each year, students display their research posters at the AAA Annual Conference, and the American Academy of Audiology Foundation grants awards to select students for their outstanding research. Three $500 awards and three $200 awards are available. These student poster awards are funded by an anonymous donor.
