The National Stuttering Association (NSA), the world’s largest support association for individuals affected by stuttering is committed to advancing knowledge, understanding, and treatment of stuttering through research. In 1998 the NSA established a Research Committee to help enhance researches access to those affected by stuttering. In addition, the NSA hosted the first-ever joint symposium for scientists and consumers.

The NSA is pleased to offer an NSA Research Award. This (up to) $2500 award is presented annually through 2021 via a competitive process. Made possible by a gift from the Canadeo Family, the award provides seek to provide funding for one research project annually in the area of stuttering treatment, stuttering assessment, or basic research in stuttering, with the intent of being used as start-up or support money for new or continuing research in the field of stuttering.

The NSA is pleased to bring researchers and their work to the stuttering community in many ways, including a variety of research surveys in which members of the community can serve as research participants.

The NSA is serious about the future of research for stuttering and is excited to be involved in advancing that future. Our goal is to continue the development of our funding capabilities so that the NSA will become a major influence in both the quantity and quality of research about stuttering.
