Loon Fellowship Award
The Loon Fellowship, a group of former UW-Madison master’s program students in Communication Sciences and Disorders, has established an award to recognize contributions by an M.S. or Au.D. student who creates and fosters a sense of community and fellowship among graduate students.
Nominees should be first-year professional-degree graduate students in good academic standing majoring in speech-language pathology or audiology, or first-year master’s-degree students in Communication Sciences and Disorders. There are no restrictions as to citizenship, age, gender, undergraduate degree, financial need or grade point average.
Nominations are sought from faculty, clinical instructors and graduate students at any point in their academic programs. Nominations should be limited to one page and should address student leadership as evidenced by the nominee’s support of fellow graduate students, and actions which foster professional development and personal relationships among students. Nominees will then be contacted and asked to prepare short responses to a limited number of questions.
