External Funding Opportunities
Hearing Health Foundation
Hearing Health Foundation (formerly Deafness research Foundation ) is a national source of private funding for research in hearing and balance science, awards grants up to $30,000 per year to researchers to conduct novel investigations of auditory and vestibular function and dysfunction. Research proposals in hearing and balance science, including those for basic, translational, and applied clinical research, will be considered. HHF wishes to stimulate research that leads to a continuing and independently fundable line of research. This opportunity is now closed. Please check back in late August for more information.
