The College of Health Sciences has received a grant from HRSA to provide scholarships to full-time graduate students studying speech-language pathology who 1) have unmet financial need and 2) meet specified requirements demonstrating that they are from economic, environmental, or educational backgrounds that may place them at a disadvantage, including those from ethnic and racial minority groups. The purpose of this scholarship program is to increase the number of licensed speech-language pathologists in medically underserved communities by removing financial barriers to successful program completion.
