MSHA MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
MSHA established the MSHA Memorial Scholarship in memory of MSHA Speech-language Pathologists and Audiologists. We hope to honor their dedication and service to our organization by offering financial support to graduate students at the University of Montana. The MSHA Scholarship is funded by donations to the Montana Speech-Language Hearing Foundation. Two $1000 scholarships are available.
The scholarship committee is composed of Barbara Doughty-Chair, Alex Kosanda, Susan Sanford, Lezlie Pearce-Hopper, Shelby Midboe, Laurell Hodges and Mina May.
Award winners will be recognized during the
