(June 25, 2021) Announcement: ​The Karen George Scholarships

Karen George Scholarships
The DePaul University Speech Language Pathology Program is excited to announce our first student scholarship.

The Karen George Scholarship was created to support an aspiring speech language pathologist who has been accepted into the DePaul University Speech Language Pathology Program and that embodies unique qualities and a vision for their career. Candidates who will be considered for this scholarship will stand out amongst their peers and can be described as follows. The student will possesses a passion for helping children with special needs and will work to reach communities who often lack access to critical speech and language therapy services. This applicant will seek to expand the field and “family” of the work of speech language pathologists and work to impact families across religious, cultural, native language, ethnic, or socioeconomic divides. This scholarship is aligned with the vision and values of St. Vincent DePaul. This scholarship will be awarded to a student who comes from humble beginnings, who has shown grit and determination, who has already demonstrated perseverance and dedication, and who has a strong sense of purpose and calling. ​

Details for applying for the scholarship will be announced later this summer.
