ATA Research Grant Program

Funding Agency:
American Tinnitus Association
ATA supports cutting-edge tinnitus science, with targeted research funding. Our $50,000 seed-grants kick-start innovative research projects and help researchers show initial proof- of-concept.
Since 1981, ATA has provided grants to innovative tinnitus research projects. To date, we have distributed nearly 6 million dollars in research funding, supporting projects that have improved our medical understanding of tinnitus, developed new tinnitus management tools, and laid the foundation for future cures.

ATA encourages clinicians, academics and researchers from around the world to apply for grant funding. This is a highly competitive program, but all completed applications will be peer-reviewed and considered by the Scientific Review Committee.

ATA funds research grants up to $50,000 per project, per year.  Multi-year projects are considered but funding is reviewed and appropriated on a year-to-year basis. (ATA does not guarantee continued funding for projects continuing beyond the current annual grant cycle. Multi-year research projects must re-apply for grant consideration each year.) The maximum funding for any project is $150,000 over 3 years.

ATA also provides a number of student research grants up to $10,000 per project.  Multi-year student projects are not eligible for funding.
