The Ida Institute is pleased to announce that the Ida Institute Research Committee is now accepting proposals for projects investigating outcomes of the use of Ida tools for our 2020 Research Grant.

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

In 2020, we are seeking projects related to the following topics:

  • Evaluation of the My Hearing Explained tool
  • Development of methods to assess the costs and benefits of person-centered care
  • Implementation approaches to adopting Ida tools in clinical practice


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, 2020, and submit results by September 1, 2021.
