The mission of the Hearing Health Foundation (HHF) is to prevent and cure hearing loss and tinnitus through groundbreaking research and to promote hearing health.

The foundation invites applications for its Emerging Research Grants program.

Through the program, grants of up to $50,000 over one year will be awarded to early-career investigators in support of any topic in hearing or balance research, including but not limited to age-related hearing loss; auditory and vestibular implants; hearing aids; Central Auditory Processing Disorder; diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of hearing loss and balance disturbance; epidemiology of auditory and vestibular disorders; hearing loss in children and pediatric hearing disorders; human genetics and mouse models of peripheral and central auditory/balance dysfunction; human otopathology; hyperacusis; innovation in cellular and molecular therapies; Ménière’s disease; physiology of hearing and balance; tinnitus; Usher syndrome; and other vestibular disorders. HHF defines early-career investigators as those who are no more than 10 years from their most recent terminal degree or medical residency at the application deadline.

Each year, a number of topic-specific grant opportunities are available for which HHF welcomes relevant proposals from any eligible investigator, regardless of career stage. Topic-specific grant opportunities for 2024-2025 include Central Auditory Processing Disorder, Ménière’s disease, middle and inner ear mechanics, and tinnitus.
