MINNEAPOLIS–Six outstanding audiology students have been awarded 2013 William F. Austin Scholarships from Starkey Hearing Technologies. More than 100 future audiologists applied for the $10,000 scholarships, which are named for the founder and CEO of Starkey, the largest U.S.-based manufacturer of hearing aids and other hearing technology.

This year’s scholarship recipients are Jodi Seligman, who attends the University of Texas at Dallas; Sara DiStefano, Arizona State University; Lauren McGivern, Kent State University; Kayla Howerton, University of Oklahoma; Richard Squires, University of Akron; and Aniruddha Deshpande, University of Cincinnati.

The William F. Austin Scholarships recognize outstanding audiology graduate students pursuing clinical, teaching and research careers in audiology. The program is part of Starkey Hearing Technologies’ educational outreach program, Starkey University, which is designed to educate and sensitize students and faculty to the complexities of practice management, hearing instrument dispensing, and manufacturing in an intensive, hands-on, highly interactive format.

Sara Burdak, senior director of education and audiology for Starkey, stated, “It is gratifying to be able to provide scholarships to these students as they pursue their goals in the field of audiology.”
