Each year, five recipients present their research findings at AudiologyNOW! and receive a $500 award from the Foundation as sponsored by Plural. We congratulate this year’s very deserving award recipients.
Messages from the award recipients:
“It was a great honor and privilege to be selected and given the opportunity to present my research project and represent the University of North Texas in the Student Research Forum. From applying to presenting, the experience was full of nervousness. However, the possibility of presenting the research that I devoted so much time to in the last 3 years on a national stage was something I could not pass up. I am so very appreciative to the Foundation and Plural Publishing for allowing five students the opportunity to gain experience in public speaking and share the work that is so meaningful to them. I enjoyed meeting the four other students involved, Dr. Samuel Atcherson from the University of Arkansas, and other representatives from audiology programs and the Academy. It would not have been possible for me to be selected without the hard work and dedication of my mentor, Dr. Amyn Amlani. The experience could not have been more perfect and I am appreciative for the award.”

Graduation can be an exciting and yet terrifying time. What do you do now that you’ve graduated and completed all your hard studies? Many turn to advice from those who are more experienced to aid them in making a decision.
We were fortunate to sit down with several of our authors in the field of audiology at the AudiologyNOW! meeting this past April. We asked these seasoned experts what advice they would give to students or anyone starting out in the communication disorders professions. Their responses were heartfelt, candid, a little irreverent, but definitely reveal a deep love for their profession.

Get an MBA/other higher degree
