Ray Kent Award

The Ray Kent Doctoral Scholarship is a fund administered through the University of Wisconsin Foundation for the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, UW-Madison.
The fund was established from the royalties derived from sales of a text book written in Emeritus Professor Kent’s honor by current colleagues and former doctoral students.
The fund will be used to award a scholarship, once a year, to a doctoral student who is in at least the second year of the program and who is working on a research project that emulates the interest areas and high level of scholarship exemplified by Professor Kent throughout his career at UW-Madison. These interest areas include motor speech disorders, normal speech production studies, speech development, and other areas of speech-language pathology. The award will be made competitively, on the basis of an application made by the doctoral student in which the nature of the project and the need for the funds is described. Preference will be given to those students who are in the midst of a project that is likely to result in a conference presentation and/or publication.
