The American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation (ASHFoundation) is inviting applications for its Rolland J. Van Hattum Award for Contribution in the Schools. The Van Hattum Award is a memorial recognition of Rolland J. Van Hattum, who had a long and distinguished career providing audiology and speech-language pathology services and support in schools and believed strongly in the dedication and professionalism of his colleagues in schools.
The award celebrates an individual's exemplary commitment and contribution to the delivery of audiology and/or speech-language pathology services within a school setting with a $2,000 grant and a plaque. In addition, the recipient’s school system will receive $500 to further the awarded work.
Eligible activities or achievements include but are not limited to the conduct of exemplary clinical services, supervision, or research in a school setting; the development of an innovative program (e.g., clinical, training) in a school setting, with an emphasis on those that are replicable; and the promotion or enhancement of public or private support for audiology and speech-language pathology services in the schools.
To be eligible, nominees must be an audiologist or speech-language pathologist employed by a school system (e.g., pre-K through high school).
See the American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
