Congratulations to the 2022 Recipients
“I would like to thank Jerry Northern and the American Academy of Audiology Foundation for this award. I am humbled and grateful to be recognized for my passion for pediatric audiology and the work that I have done to begin my career in the field. This award will provide me with the resources to complete both my externship and research this year with all of my available time, energy, and attention. In addition, this award will facilitate my participation in the AAA 2023+HearTECH Expo, a conference that has always contributed greatly to my growth that I did not think I would have the ability to attend this year. I could not be more thankful for this opportunity to continue to devote myself enthusiastically to my growth and learning as a young clinician, researcher, and professional.”
“Being awarded the Jerry Northern Scholarship in Pediatric Audiology is a tremendous honor and it means so much to me on many levels. The generous stipend will alleviate a significant amount of the financial burden of graduate school, and being selected for the scholarship has also made me feel validated in my decision to return to academics in an entirely new and challenging field. Perhaps most importantly, though, receiving this recognition has certainly boosted my confidence in myself and my abilities, and furthered my resolve to be the best future pediatric audiologist I can be for the children and families I will serve.”
“I am so grateful to Dr. Jerry Northern and the AAA Foundation scholarship committee for awarding me with this scholarship. It provides incredible financial relief and will allow me to dedicate more energy and focus on completing my externship. The generous additional funding to attend AAA 2023+HearTECH Expo will increase my knowledge of best practices and motivate me to network with students and audiologists across the country. It is inspirational as a budding clinician to be recognized as a future leader of this profession with the potential to further advance the field of pediatric audiology.”
