AudiologyOnline donated $5000 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 $2500 scholarships each are Meredith Braza and Rhonda Labib.
“Receiving this opportunity is such an honor, and this support will undoubtedly serve as a springboard for my future career,” said Braza, a student at the The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

“This scholarship has made the biggest difference in my education and life during these tough times,” said Labib, who is studying at University of the Pacific. “This award will certainly help me get closer to my goal of being an international audiologist.”
In addition to the scholarship, both recipients will receive a lifetime membership to AudiologyOnline to support their lifelong learning.
