The Audiology Foundation of America (AFA) has announced the winners of its Outstanding 2nd-Year Au.D. Student Scholarship for the 2007-2008 academic year.

Second-year Au.D. students Mary L. Carson, from Towson University, and Kelli N. Wright, from the Northeast Ohio AuD Consortium (NOAC), have each been awarded a $4,500 scholarship. The two winners were chosen from a group of 30 nominees from 4-year AuD programs throughout the country.

The Outstanding AuD Student Scholarships were established to recognize and support the "best and brightest" Au.D. students. The scholarships are funded by a grant from the Oticon Foundation, also known as the William Demant and Wife Ida Emilie Foundation. Scholarship winners will be honored by the AFA at events held at their universities.
