The Zilveti Family 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.
Carlos, "C.J.," and Mary Zilveti established this fellowship in honor of C.J.'s mother, Halina. Halina was a speech therapist with a school district in Woodbridge, Conn., for 30 years. C.J. Zilveti admired the important work that his mother did and the impact that it had in the lives of the children she worked with.
The Zilveti's hope the fellowship will encourage and assist students at ASU who demonstrate a similar passion for assisting others through the field of speech and hearing science.
The award provides financial assistance to help defray tuition expenses. Award winners must be entering their second year of the Master of Science program with a specialization in speech-language pathology. The recipient of this award will be selected in the spring.
The Zilveti fellowship is available to full-time, regularly admitted students entering the second year of the program. Selection is based on Arizona residency, academic scholarship and career interest. Financial circumstances are also considered.
