Council of Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders

2018 Ph.D. Scholarship Program Guidelines

Application deadline was February 2, 2018
Awards will be announced late-March

Program Description

The Council of Academic Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CAPCSD) is committed to addressing the Ph. D. shortage in communication sciences and disorders. To this end, CAPCSD will address a salient factor influencing the Ph. D. pipeline: time to degree completion.  CAPCSD announces a scholarship program for students pursuing a research doctoral degree (i.e., Ph. D.) focused on an academic career in communication sciences and disorders.  CAPCSD will fund up to ten (10) scholarships and each successful applicant receives a scholarship for $20,000. These scholarships are intended for those students who have advanced to the candidacy stage of their respective doctoral programs (ABD). Priority will be given to those applicants completing their degrees in Fall 2018 or beyond.

Eligibility Requirements

  • At the time of the application, candidates must have successfully advanced to candidacy in a regionally accredited academic program, at a CAPCSD member institution with membership in good standing as of September 15, 2017.
  • Member institutions can nominate only one scholarship application. Those with multiple potential applicants may devise their own internal review process for the selection of one applicant. The selected candidate can submit his or her own application.

Application Process
The application requires:

  • Summary of the dissertation research (1,000-word limit).
    1. Dissertation research plan
    2. Background
    3. Specific aims/objectives
    4. Methods and outcome measures
    5. Anticipated completion date
  • Supporting Documents
    1. Cover letter from the applicant with a brief introduction of the research project and stated commitment to an academic position upon completion of their Ph.D. program. The cover letter should include reference to current Ph.D. funding and how a CAPCSD scholarship would facilitate completion of the dissertation research (two pages, double-spaced, 12-point font, one-inch margins).
    2. Research Reference Citations
    3. Curriculum Vitae
    4. Letter of Support from research advisor
    5. Advisor’s bio sketch

Basis for Evaluation:

  • Stated commitment to an academic career in communication sciences and disorders
  • Strength of proposed dissertation research project
  • Strength of applicant CV (publishing, presenting, teaching, etc.)
  • Strength of rationale for how this scholarship would impact timely completion of Ph. D.
  • Strength of mentor nomination letter

SLP Scholarship Guide

TABLE OF CONTENTS


If there is one thing every speech-language pathologist (SLP) has in common, it’s that they have spent an awful lot of time in school to get where they are. Professional licensing and certification requires a post-bachelor’s degree which means, at a minimum, you’re looking at four years of college as an undergrad followed by another two years or so earning at least a master’s degree. With clinical practicum work thrown in, it can easily take even longer.

That much education isn’t cheap. A master’s degree in SLP or CSD (Communication Sciences and Disorders) can cost anywhere between $23,000 and $75,000 at a public university and as much as $90,000 at a private institution. That’s before you even start looking at textbooks or little things like food and a place to sleep.

Searching for online degree programs can help with some of that, but no matter what, you’re going to be on the hook for tuition and fees to the tune of tens of thousands.

Scholarship Criteria – You’ll Need to Be Deserving and a Good Investment

Fortunately, you have a lot of excellent choices when it comes to scholarship opportunities in SLP. The field is underpinned by the strength of the professional organizations supporting it at both national and state levels, and the many different universities that offer SLP programs.

Ethnicity and Socioeconomic Status…

Something you’re going to run into almost immediately is the stringent eligibility criteria for each scholarship. Not all scholarships are open to all applicants. Many, and perhaps even most, are fairly narrowly focused on a specific demographic or require other qualifications that you will have to meet before you can even apply. Everything from ethnicity or racial status to family background or economic status to state residency can come into play for these kinds of scholarships.

Academic Performance is Key…

You should also expect that any organization granting a scholarship is going to hold you to a pretty high standard. Since you’ll be wearing their logo emblazoned across a t-shirt for the rest of your college career, you’ll be expected to be a good representative. This means meeting certain standards for your grade-point average, either historically or as part of the current program you are enrolled in.

Presentation isn’t Everything, but it’s Important…

You will often have to provide written references from teachers or other people who know you. You might have to provide a resume or CV. Many scholarships require an essay as part of the application process, allowing you to discuss your reasons for getting into the field and explaining why you are a good investment.

Common Sources For SLP Scholarships

A good old fashion Google search is a great resource for scholarship information but you’ll quickly find yourself overwhelmed with options, and as smart as Google may be, it still struggles to filter results so you’re just presented with scholarships specific to SLP that you’re actually eligible for.

You may be better off narrowing down your search initially by focusing on specific organizations or institutions that are likely to offer SLP scholarships… Sound tedious? Skip that and just take a look at the comprehensive list we put together below.

Don’t hesitate to bundle together multiple scholarships. Although the grants for SLP degrees are often higher than they are in many other fields, it’s not likely you’ll find a full-ride from a single source. You’re likely going to have to cobble together a number of scholarships each year if you want to cover a substantial portion of your tuition and books.

The American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation Scholarships

ASHFoundation should be your first stop on the SLP scholarship hunt. Founded in 1946 to support the advancement of knowledge in the field of communication studies, one of the primary ways the foundation has chosen to fulfill that mission is by funding research grants and scholarships. Since its inception, ASHFoundation has supported more than 2,000 doctoral and post-doctoral students with more than $8 million in awards. You could be one of them!

The Foundation has two separate general scholarship programs:

  • New Century Scholars Doctoral Scholarship for doctoral candidates – For students enrolled in, or accepted to, a PhD or equivalent program in CSD. Up to 15 awards of $10,000 each are available.
  • Graduate Student Scholarship – For students who are undergraduate seniors accepted to master’s programs, or currently pursuing master’s or doctoral degrees. Up to 15 awards of $5,000 each are available.

Applications for each of these are available on the Foundation grants page.

There are also four specially endowed scholarships that you may qualify for. Each have the same terms as the Graduate Student Scholarship, but are awarded to candidates in specific categories:

  • Students with a Disability Scholarship – For students with a disability.
  • Minority Student Scholarship – For students who are U.S. citizens and members of a racial or ethnic minority group.
  • International Student Scholarship – For international students (non-U.S. citizens) studying SLP in the United States.
  • NSSLHA Scholarship – For undergraduate senior students with active National Student Speech Language Hearing Association Memberships.

Healthcare Organization Scholarships

Because SLP is a subset of the healthcare field, you will find a lot of scholarship opportunities from organizations that encourage education in medical and therapy professions.

You do have to be careful to ensure that SLP is considered an appropriate field of study on a case-by-case basis for these scholarships. Some are narrowly drawn to only include certain types of medical degrees.

But in some cases, these could very well be scholarships specific to SLP degrees while excludig other areas of healthcare. One such scholarship is offered through McLaren Healthcare, a healthcare system based in Michigan that offers a very generous SLP scholarship award of up to $6,000 per year to graduate students. And you don’t even need to be a resident of Michigan to qualify; it’s open to anyone, nationwide.

It pays to look at the fine print, however. Many of these organizations have specific motives in offering these scholarships, and McLaren is a good example. In exchange for their scholarship, you are expected to commit to at least one year of employment at a McLaren facility post licensure. You may not have much control over which facility or even which department you will be assigned to in order to fulfill that commitment. Depending on your situation, this might feel like a limiting factor, or it could be exactly the kind of opportunity for travel and sure-shot job placement you’re looking for.

Support and Research Organization Scholarships

Although speech-language pathology is a field with broad application across many different diseases and disorders as well as injury rehabilitation, there are some disorders where it is more commonly used as a treatment than others. In some cases, such as with autism, there are strong community support groups and non-profit organizations dedicated to supporting research and treatment.

These organizations often offer scholarship funds to students who are going into fields that are in-demand among those communities. The Autism Science Foundation, for instance, offers pre- and post-doctoral training awards each year totaling up to $35,000 for students studying fields scientifically related to autism. This includes motor function and other types of research that SLP fits into directly.

There are also groups with slightly broader missions that might include funding SLP education. The Charles A. Frueauff Foundation, for example, provides scholarships of up to $10,000 to graduate students studying a number of physical and occupational therapy fields, including speech-language pathology.

Don’t be afraid to get off the beaten path looking for these scholarships. Colorado students, for instance, might be surprised to find that the Scottish Rite Foundation, a somewhat secretive society of freemasons there, offers the Dwight A. Hamilton Scholarship in Speech Language Pathology to Colorado residents each year.

University Graduate Program Scholarships

Almost all SLP graduate programs have scholarship and grant opportunities available through the college or university that offer them. These may be specific to SLP studies or available to any graduate student.

Although the competition will be greater for scholarships that are more widely available, you might find that there are more awards offered through them, so it’s still worth your time to apply.

But there are often scholarships specific to CSD or SLP masters programs too, like the array of scholarships available at the University of Utah College of Health.

The best resource for all of these types of scholarships, as well as many others, will be through your school’s financial aid office. They keep comprehensive lists of available scholarships that can quickly be sorted to find those that you may qualify for, and they offer expert assistance to help stack the odds in your favor when it’s time to apply for those grants.
