AudiologyOnline donates to the AAAF Continued Achievement Scholarship, which benefits qualified students who are currently enrolled in AuD, PhD, or AuD/PhD programs and who show exceptional promise in providing outstanding patient care as clinical audiologists.
This year’s recipients of $2000 scholarships each are Madalyn Anderson, a student at the University of Iowa, and Karl Velik, a student at The Ohio State University.
“To say I was honored to receive the AAAF Scholarship would be an understatement—it's an acknowledgment that hard work, dedication, and a strong desire to keep learning and growing in my career path has been recognized by those I strive to emulate,” Anderson said. “I am so very appreciative to have been selected.”

“I am deeply honored to be recognized by the AAAF for my work at the start of my career,” Velik said. “This scholarship confirms to me that my hard work inside and outside of the clinic has been worth it and that audiology is the field for me. Receiving this award has encouraged me to continue focusing on personal improvement and finding new ways to become a more effective clinician.”
In addition to the scholarship, both recipients will receive a lifetime membership to AudiologyOnline to support their lifelong learning.
“As a doctorate-level profession, we recognize that audiology requires intense personal and professional commitments from students over many years,” said Christy Huynh, AuD, managing editor of AudiologyOnline. “Audiology care is an important part of overall healthcare for people of all ages, and the demand for audiologists is projected to grow exponentially in the next few years. We see these scholarships as a means to help support talented audiology students and also as an investment in the future of our profession.”
