About the WSHA Foundation

The WSHA Foundation is a nonprofit entity created to enhance the discipline of communication sciences and disorders through student scholarships and research grants. The scholarships and grants benefit graduate students studying communication disorders offering financial assistance to complete their professional degree and provide services to those with communication disorders.

Donors may designate if their donation is applied to scholarship, research grant or be undesignated. Donors also may name a scholarship or research grant and determine the criteria of the recipient when $500 or more is donated within a year. Establishing a scholarship is the perfect way to honor a respected mentor, inspirational colleague or loved one.
