The American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation is accepting applications from full-time master’s and doctoral students in communication sciences and disorders (CSD) for 2011–2012 academic year scholarships. The application deadline is June 3.
Up to 20 general scholarships of $5,000 each will be awarded to master’s or doctoral (research or clinical) CSD students who demonstrate outstanding academic merit and promise.
2010 Graduate Student Scholarship recipients (front row, from left) Pui Mei Lam, The College of St. Rose; Katerina Ntourou, Vanderbilt University; Sarah Panjwani, University of Texas-Austin; (back row, from left) Aneesha Virani, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge; Jessica Gutierrez, University of Redlands; Carie Hudson, North Carolina Central University; and Analydia Fulcher, University of Arizona.
Additionally, up to three special scholarships of $5,000 will be awarded for the following categories.
  • Student With a Disability—one scholarship gives priority to a student with a disability, supported by the Leslie Londer Fund, and general contributions.

  • Minority Student—one scholarship, supported by the Minority Fund and general contributions to the annual fund, gives priority to a student with U.S. citizenship who is a member of a racial or ethnic minority group.

  • International Student—one scholarship, supported by the Kala Singh Memorial Fund and general contributions, gives priority to an international student studying in the United States.

Potential applicants must meet eligibility criteria and submit an official application packet. Students must be accepted or enrolled in full-time graduate study in a CSD program in the United States, and may not have received prior ASHFoundation funding. Scholarships are to be used for educational support (e.g., tuition, books, school living expenses) and not for personal or conference travel.
Scholarship submission materials are available on the ASHFoundation website or by calling 800-498-2071, ext. 8703.
