The Carol Seaholm Tymkowych Fellowship is a permanent endowment for the Department of Speech and Hearing Science. Funding for this scholarship is made possible by annual earnings of the Arizona State University Foundation account and by memorial gifts.
Carol Seaholm earned her master's in communication disorders at Arizona State University. She was dedicated to helping those who suffer from communication disorders and wished for others to join her in this special vocation.
Her husband John, with family and friends, established the Carol Seaholm Tymkowych Memorial Fellowship to provide financial aid to those seeking a profession in the science and art of human communication and its disorders.
The award provides financial assistance to help defray tuition expenses. Award winners must meet all departmental admission eligibility requirements and continue academic progress, as verified by the chair of the Department of Speech and Hearing Science, to receive the award. At present, this award is for graduate students entering the second year of the program.
The Tymkowych fellowship is available to full-time, regularly admitted students entering the second year of the master of science in communication disorders program with a specialization in speech-language pathology. Selection is based on clinical performance, academic ability and career interest. Financial circumstances are also considered.
