ATA Research Grant Program

Funding Agency:
American Tinnitus Association

The American Tinnitus Association (ATA), the nation’s only non-profit dedicated exclusively to serving the needs of the tinnitus community, accepts applications on an annual basis for its Innovative Tinnitus Research Grants Program. Researchers, in the United States and abroad, who are working on novel approaches that may contribute substantively to scientific understanding of tinnitus, breakthroughs in treatments, and possible cures are encouraged to apply for an ATA grant award.

Scientists, academics, and healthcare professionals affiliated with non-profit medical and research institutions are encouraged to apply for ATA grants and awards, which include:

  • $60,000 Innovative Tinnitus Research Grant for Established Investigators
  • $25,000 Innovative Tinnitus Research Grant for Early Investigators
  • $2,000 travel awards for students and postdoctoral fellow investigators
  • $2,000 conference awards to host a virtual or in-person conference

ATA grants are for one- or two-year investigations. All tinnitus-related proposals will be reviewed in a highly competitive process by the ATA's Scientific Advisory Committee, and approved by the Board of Directors, following a peer-reviewed process modeled after the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
