The American Academy of Audiology Foundation (AAAF) has announced two scholarship recipients supported by a contribution from continued’s AudiologyOnline.

AudiologyOnline donated $4000 to the AAAF Continued Achievement Scholarship, which benefits qualified students currently enrolled in AuD, PhD, or AuD/PhD programs who show exceptional promise in providing outstanding patient care as clinical audiologists.

This year’s recipients of $2000 scholarships each are Kayla Copperthite and Kayla Murphy.

Copperthite is an audiology student at the University of Pittsburgh. Murphy is an audiology student at Auburn University.

“As a doctorate-level profession, we recognize that audiology requires intense personal and professional commitments from students over many years. With the aging population in the US, there is a critical need for audiologists that will only continue to grow,” said Christy Huynh, AuD, managing editor of AudiologyOnline. “We see these scholarships as a means to help support these talented audiology students and also as an investment in the future of the profession.”
