Student Testimonial:

Thank you and your team at the NHCA Foundation for the Student Research Award! Without the financial assistance from the award I would not have been able to travel to San Antonio and present my research. Everyone that I met was so friendly and inviting. The NHCA has had a lasting impression on me. I hope that many students take advantage of the scholarship opportunities to share their research and passion towards hearing conservation!

Student Testimonial:
Thank you to the generous donors and the NHCA Scholarship Foundation for supporting student research. Being awarded the 2017 Student Conference Award allowed me the opportunity to present my research at the 2017 NHCA Conference. The experience at this conference is unlike any other conference I have attended. The hearing conservation community is extremely supportive, welcoming, and friendly.

I would highly encourage future student researchers to apply for the scholarships available. It is a gratifying experience to share your hearing conservation research with people who are invested in the same topic. I look forward to attending future NHCA conferences.
