The Wisconsin Speech-Language-Hearing Association Foundation currently sponsors several annual scholarship competitions, with awards announced at the Association’s Convention in the spring of each year. In awarding scholarships, WSHA does not discriminate based on race, color, creed, age, gender, sexual orientation, or disability. Numerous awards are available. For most awards, applicants must be graduate students in their first year of an M.S. or M.A. program in speech-language pathology or audiology in the state of Wisconsin. For the Jack Kile Scholarship, applicants can be an undergraduate with the goal of going on to graduate school in audiology. Individual scholarship criteria varies.
You may apply for up to two scholarships and one research grant per competition cycle (annually). Students may apply for scholarships and grants each year they are qualified. Students may be awarded scholarships or grants in multiple years. You may send in one transcript even if applying for two scholarships; the Foundation office will take care of attaching a copy to your other scholarship application. You may submit one set of recommendation letters and the Foundation office will duplicate copies as needed to make complete application packets; alternatively, you may invite separate letters for different scholarships or encourage those writing for you to customize each letter.
