Student Highlight - Nicole Larsen!

It is my great pleasure to announce that Nicole is a recipient of the 2017 Students Preparing for Academic-Research Careers (SPARC) Award. For this award, Nicole identified mentors, submitted mentored teaching and research plans, and submitted other important documents to demonstrate her eligibility and potential. More information about the SPARC award is listed below.

Congrats Nicole!!!



The SPARC Award Program is part of ASHA’s strategic objective to enhance the generation, and eventual implementation of, clinical research. The goal of SPARC is to foster students’ interest in the pursuit of PhD education and careers in academia in order to fill faculty/researcher vacancies in communication sciences and disorders (CSD). As a SPARC Award recipient, Ms. Larsen will receive a $1,000 stipend to support activities proposed in her research mentoring and teaching plan. She will be required to submit both an interim and a final report. Ms. Larsen's primary mentor, Dr. Jessica Richardson, will assist her in these efforts.

Thank you for your support of Ms. Larsen, as well as the SPARC Award program. We hope that the SPARC Award will further facilitate Ms. Larsen's progress toward a PhD degree and faculty-researcher career. Join us in congratulating Ms. Larsen's success as one of only 14 SPARC awardees this year, and highlighting her success with others in your program.
