Supporting Speech and Hearing Sciences

The UNC Chapel Hill Division of Speech and Hearing Sciences depends on private financial support to maintain its record of excellence and provide students with the best possible educational experiences. From purchasing state-of-the-art equipment, to providing scholarships for students and funding for faculty research, private gifts are crucial to the program’s continued success. Your generosity will enable the Division of Speech and Hearing Sciences to fulfill its mission of preparing competent audiologists and speech-language pathologists who have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required to meet the current and future demands of health care.

"I chose the field of speech-language pathology because I wanted to help enable people to effectively communicate and interact with the world around them. I have a particular interest in working with adults who have communication disorders as a result of a brain pathology, whether that be the result of a stroke, a traumatic brain injury, or a progressive disease such as Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease. Verbal communication is such a vital part of an individual’s quality of life, and I hope that I am able to restore that ability for many of my future patients. I am very thankful for the awarding of this scholarship, as it alleviates some of the financial burden of attending graduate school and allows me to focus my attention on learning and gaining knowledge to be a competent clinician."
