HR NHCA2014ConferenceArtwork The Scholarship Foundation of the National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA) has announced the availability of a limited number of student conference awards for the 38th Annual NHCA Conference, to be held March 13-15, 2014, in Las Vegas, Nev.  In addition to technical presentations on hearing loss prevention, there will be numerous opportunities to attend in-depth workshops, poster sessions, and discussion groups.  The organization reports that it has a great program planned, as well as a Friday night get-together.

The Student Conference Award (SCA) includes paid registration to two workshops (March 13), the annual conference (March 14 and 15), lunches, social activities, and a stipend for travel expenses. This one-time award is available to students who are actively pursuing a graduate degree in a discipline related to hearing conservation and who are enrolled at least half-time in an accredited university program. Previous recipients of the NHCA Student Conference Award include masters and doctoral-level students in audiology, human factors engineering, industrial hygiene, and public health, from a variety of universities across the country.
