Conference Grants

The NIDCD recognizes a responsibility to assist in the support of scientific meetings that are directed toward research objectives clearly within communication sciences and disorders.

Funds for research conference support are provided by means of grant awards following competitive review. Since funds allotted for conference support are very limited, potential applicants are encouraged to contact NIDCD staff for additional information before preparing an application. NIDCD will provide funds up to $30,000 (total costs) for R13 applications. The Institute usually supplies less than the $30,000 award ceiling and frequently supplies only partial support for a conference. NIDCD is willing to accept applications requesting budgets greater than $30,000, because other NIH Institutes/Centers may contribute funds to support the application, beyond the NIDCD cap.
