The Innovative Tinnitus Research Grants from the American Tinnitus Association are open to tinnitus researchers worldwide. The ATA encourages a multidisciplinary approach to solve the complex and variable experience within tinnitus research, clinical care, and patient outcomes. Applicants may apply for funding under one of the following categories:
- Established Investigators: tinnitus researchers who have been in the field for at least 7 years or who have received substantial, independent research awards, such as an R01 or R01-equivalent.
- Early Investigators: tinnitus researchers who have not yet successfully competed for a substantial, independent research grant, and have completed their research degree and/or clinical training within the past 7 years.
