Congratulations to the 2023 Recipients
I want to extend my sincere gratitude to Dr. Jerry Northern and American Academy of Audiology Foundation for this generous award. Working on my degree while also raising my own children has put an enormous financial strain on my family. This scholarship will alleviate a great deal of the financial burden this year and allow me to devote more of my mental energy to the kids I see at my externship, as well as my advocacy and research. I am truly honored to be recognized and validated in my passion for pediatric audiology.
I am truly honored to be a recipient of the Jerry Northern Scholarship in Pediatric Audiology and am grateful to the Academy Foundation and Dr. Jerry Northern for their overwhelming support. This scholarship will allow me to devote my time and attention to my clinical work and my capstone investigating factors that influence audiometric thresholds in preschoolers, as I prepare for my fourth-year externship.
I am now confident that I will be able to complete the manuscript for my capstone and am eager for the opportunity to attend and, hopefully, present my research at AAA 2024. This scholarship will motivate my continued involvement in pediatric audiology through clinic, research, and advocacy beyond this academic year as I become a young professional. Thank you again for this honor!
Receiving the American Academy of Audiology Foundation’s Jerry Northern Scholarship is a profound honor. Recognition for my pediatric audiology passions is career-affirming since audiology is a career change following an acoustic neuroma diagnosis in 2020 and subsequent single-sided deafness and vestibular difficulties. This award will help me further integrate my work as an educator and counselor to fuse more empathy and whimsy into the field. Our patients and their families deserve only the most excellent of experiences!
The AAA Foundation will accept applications for the 2024 Jerry Northern Scholarships in Pediatric Audiology for the 2024-2025 academic year beginning January 2024. Applications are due April 30, 2024.
