AuD students take the Starkey Award
Students of the Au.D. program win $5,000 scholarship award
The students of the Au.D. program take the winning check of $5,000 scholarship award from Starkey University from the Trivia Challenge at AudiologyNOW! in Dallas, TX on April 14. 2009. The game was played more than 4,000 times by students across the country. The award was presented to the NAFDA chapter of Gallaudet University by Dr. Jerry L. Northern of Starkey University. Renowned audiologist, author, and Gallaudet University alumnus, he holds affiliation as a Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology at the University of Colorado Medical School for 30 years.
As part of its AudiologyNOW! booth, Starkey created a lounge dedicated to students, which housed the interactive Trivia Challenge. Students, faculty and alumni were asked to answer ten questions on auditory science, audiology history and Starkey's newest technology, S Series™ with Drive Architecture™. Sixty-five university programs competed, and the schools with the highest average correct scores were awarded donations to enhance their graduate audiology education programs.
