The NIDCD recognizes a responsibility to assist in supporting scientific meetings that are directed toward research objectives clearly within the field of communication sciences and disorders.
Funds for research conference support are provided through grant awards following competitive review. Applicants must obtain prior permission before submitting an application, per the general R13 guidelines (active funding opportunities available here). This prior contact with NIDCD staff also allows potential applicants to discuss programmatic and budgetary issues before preparing an application, as funds allotted for conference support are very limited.
Since 2011, the NIDCD R13 program has had a budget cap of $40,000 in direct costs per year. Requests for budgets beyond that amount may be considered with NIDCD prior approval for special circumstances or unique requirements. The NIDCD frequently provides only partial funding of conferences. Other NIH institutes/centers may co-contribute funds to support an NIDCD application.
