The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders administers a number of scholarships and awards open to undergraduate majors and graduate students. Recipients are chosen on a competitive basis according to the criteria established for the particular award.

National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA)
NSSLHA exists to provide guidance and resources to students interested in the fields of speech/language pathology and audiology. Involvement in NSSLHA leads to a fuller appreciation of the professions of speech-language pathology and audiology and a greater awareness of the issues affecting these fields. Some issues include:
encouraging professional interest among college and university students in the study of normal and disordered human communication behavior;
assisting college and university departments and local organizations interested in speech, hearing, and language behavior and disorders;
providing professional information;
providing a vehicle for student representation in matters of professional concern; and
developing leadership skills for students. Many NSSLHA chapter presidents go on to assume leadership roles on the NSSLHA executive council and in ASHA or the state associations.
