Beginning in 2011, MSHA began awarding yearly scholarships to deserving graduate students attending school in the state of Maryland.
Graduate Scholarship Process: Graduate students who volunteer for MSHA's Spring event are eligible to win the yearly scholarship. Dr. Kaitlyn Wilson, who is a MSHA board member, is the person who recruits and assigns volunteers at the Symposium. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Dr. Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org. One lucky graduate student volunteer will win a scholarship each year, valued from $500 to $1000.
In addition to MSHA scholarships, ASHA also awards Graduate Student Scholarships. Here is a link to their information, which includes many different opportunities for scholarship assistance. Please visit https://www.ashfoundation.org/apply/#Scholarships for more information.
ASHA has created several programs to foster leadership and promote careers in academia and research. Please visit http://www.asha.org/Students/awards for more information on these opportunities.
A career in CSD can be financially rewarding. And there is good news about financial aid. ASHA offers great resources if you are looking for assistance.
