Linda Ruffalo Award
This endowed fund was established in 2013 by Linda L. Ruffalo.
The purpose of this endowed scholarship is to provide financial support for full-time undergraduate students in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders who are majoring in the areas of Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology. The only requirement for awarding this scholarship is that the student have a demonstrated financial need as determined by the Office of Student Financial Aid at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. If no such student can be found in the specific aforementioned areas, the donor requests that the scholarship not be awarded for that year and a larger scholarship awarded when an eligible recipient can be found.
Recipients of this fund are strongly encouraged to write a note of appreciation to Ms. Ruffalo.
