Outstanding Graduate & Undergraduate Students

Every year OSLHA honors up to 3 outstanding students from each university that offers Speech-Language Pathology and/or Audiology programs. OSLHA considers an "outstanding student" as someone who not only excels academically, but also has outstanding interpersonal skills, shows evidence of leadership, and is dedicated to the ideals of the profession. The students are selected by the university.

The selected graduate and undergraduate students will be awarded a free registration to the OSLHA Convention, as well as a one-year free Honorary Membership for the following fiscal year.
