The Ida Institute is now accepting proposals for projects investigating outcomes of the use of Ida tools for our 2021 Research Grant. The purpose of the Grant is to stimulate interest in person-centered methodologies, supporting further research and building evidence in this important area.

Funding will be awarded to projects that develop evidence related to Ida Institute methods and online tools and aim to demonstrate the effects of person-centered care in hearing rehabilitation.

Topic 1: Outcomes of online hearing care using Ida tools and resources

Topic 2: Experiences of and/or outcomes with My Hearing Explained for Children

The Research Committee will review applications and select three projects. Applicants may request up to $10,000 USD in funding. Recipients of the grant agree to begin their research by September 1, 2021 – and submit results by September 1, 2022.
