Emerging Research Grants
Since our inception in 1958, Hearing Health Foundation has awarded nearly $30 million through more than 2,000 grants to hearing and balance research. This money has led to dramatic innovations that increase options for those living with hearing loss, as well as protecting those at risk. With the potential for hearing restoration through regeneration biology, the scope of Hearing Health Foundation-funded research has expanded enormously. Hearing Health Foundation supports research in the following areas:
  • Fundamental Auditory Research - development, genetics, molecular biology, physiology, anatomy, and regeneration biology
  • Hearing and Balance Restoration - infants, children and adults
  • Cochlear implants / surgical therapy for otosclerosis / hair cell regeneration / hearing aids, medical therapy
  • Hearing Loss - aging, noise-induced , otosclerosis, viral infection (sudden deafness), ototoxicity, temporal bone pathology, otitis media, cholesteatoma, and tumors
  • Vestibular and Balance Disorders (dizziness and vertigo, Meniere's disease)
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and Hyperacusis (decreased tolerance of sound).
Hearing Health Foundation also focuses efforts on Under-Researched Areas of Focus.  Researchers conducting projects in the Areas of Focus are strongly encouraged to apply for the Emerging Research Grants program.  Researchers interested in applying for this program, please visit our For Researchers section.
