WSLHA Student Membership
If you are a student and are not already a Student Member of WSLHA, we hope you’ll seriously consider joining.
There are many benefits to becoming a Student Member of WSLHA, including $10 for a one-year membership, scholarship opportunities, deep discounts on registration to the WSLHA Annual Convention, and a headstart on your career in speech-language pathology and audiology.
WSLHA Student Scholarship Opportunities
The Washington Speech-Language-Hearing Association (WSLHA) offers scholarship awards of $500.00 to selected WSLHA Student Members who will be attending an advanced degree program for speech-language pathology, communication sciences, and disorders, communicative disorders, or audiology at an accredited university program. Awards will be determined at the September WSLHA board meeting and the winner(s) will be announced shortly thereafter. The recipient(s) will be recognized during the Annual WSLHA Convention and in subsequent WSLHA publications.
For more information regarding scholarship awards, please contact Lisa Van Horne.
Completed applications (including letters of recommendation) must be received by the WSLHA office by July 15th. If the applicant is an incoming first-year graduate student, a copy of a letter of acceptance from an accredited graduate program must accompany the application. Incomplete applications will not be eligible for consideration.
The WSLHA Honors and Awards Committee evaluates applicants for scholarships solely on the information provided in the application packet submitted by the applicant. When information and/or documentation are incomplete, the Honors and Awards Committee must reject the application. All eligible applications will be rated by the Honors and Awards Committee based on the criteria listed below. Based upon the number of available scholarships, the highest-scoring applicant(s) will be selected to receive the financial award.
We are in the process of forming a WSLHA Student Committee that will then choose a representative to be a liaison with the WSHLA Board. If you are interested in serving on this committee, please contact Marty Nevdahl.
