Six faculty members have received the 2013 Advancing Academic Research Careers award and 10 students have received the 2013 Students Preparing for Academic Research Careers award. Now in their 10th year, these ASHA award programs are designed to help reduce the shortage of PhD-level faculty in communication sciences and disorders.
AARC awards are designed to help encourage junior-level CSD faculty to remain in higher education. Each winner receives $5,000 to support mentored activities that may include, for example, enhancing teaching skills, conducting research, writing grant applications, publishing research, and presenting at professional meetings. Two of the awards were specifically designated for clinical practice research.
The 2013 AARC winners are Sue Grogan-Johnson, Kent State University; Sunjung Kim, University of Central Arkansas; Erin Picou, Vanderbilt University; Jessica Richardson, University of South Carolina; Karla Washington, University of Cincinnati; and Krystal Werfel, University of South Carolina.
SPARC is designed to foster students' interest in pursuing a PhD and career in academia. Each winner receives $1,000 to support a mentored relationship for teaching and research-related activities, which may include travel to scientific and professional meetings. For details on the recipient's planned teaching activities and research interests, visit the SPARC website.
The 2013 recipients, all master's students (unless otherwise noted), are Kenia De Los Santos, Iona College (undergraduate); Michelle Erskine, University of Wisconsin-Madison; Laura Friedman, University of Maryland-College Park (undergraduate); Diondra Maestas, University of New Mexico (undergraduate); Cornetta Mosley, University of Washington (AuD); Callie Muri, University of Texas-Dallas; Jillian Nyswonger, East Carolina University; Jamie Ragsdale, University of New Mexico (undergraduate); Caitlin Ryan, University of Wisconsin-Madison; and Kristin VanWyngaarden, University of Nebraska-Omaha.
