Two graduate students from the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) have recently been awarded diversity scholarships.
Ting-Ting Hsu has been named the recipient of the East-West Center Gary S.H. Lin Graduate Degree Fellowship. The 24-month fellowship allows students, who must be from Taiwan, to pursue a Master’s or Doctoral degree at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UH Manoa). Only students studying at UH from Taiwan are eligible for this award.
Hsu’s fellowship includes tuition and fees, housing in the EWC dormitory, health insurance and partial living allowance. In addition, she is required to partake in the programs provided by the UH Mānoa East-West Center.
Ansley Davis has received a scholarship from the National Black Association of Speech-Language and Hearing (NBASLH) in partnership with Let’s Talk Therapy, which is intended to support a student interested in owning and operating a private practice. The scholarship covers the costs of professional and educational expenses, such as clinical material, tuition, business cards and other fees. Davis will receive her $1,500 honorarium at the NBASLH Annual Convention in Washington DC later this April.
