Plural’s Commitment to Research

The founders of Plural Publishing, the late Dr. Sadanand Singh and his wife and current CEO, Angie Singh, demonstrated their deep commitment to the Communications Science and Disorders and Audiology professions by establishing five scholarships to be awarded each year to worthy candidates who are engaged in important research for their respective fields of interest.  In addition to the above awards, two Plural Publishing Research Scholarships, in honor of Dr. Sadanand Singh, are awarded at CAPCSD each year to support master-level and a doctoral-level graduate student research.  Our belief is that education extends far beyond the classroom and that the research conducted in these fields is of vital importance to everyone, from student to clinician to academician.
