The goal of this scholarship is to increase the awareness of multicultural issues for Speech Pathologists and Audiologists

The cultural and linguistic landscape of Oklahoma is more diverse than ever. Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists who practice within the state will have increasing opportunities to serve people who come from a different country or whose primary language is not English. It is both appropriate and highly recommended that practitioners who serve these populations have specific competencies that allow them to provide culturally/linguistically appropriate services. The shortage of bilingual clinicians to provide these services results in services being provided by someone who has no or limited familiarity with the diverse persons who access speech-language and/or hearing services. The goal of the this scholarship is to increase knowledge and awareness of cultural and linguistic issues for future Oklahoma based practitioners and to facilitate the development of innovative projects and programs to better serve the diverse population of the state.
