Scholarhips for Bilingual Speech-Language Pathology and School Psychology Students
Bilingual Therapies Scholarships are available for up to $7,000.
The Bilingual Therapies (BT) Graduate scholarship program to me was one of the best opportunities that I came across during my last year of Graduate school.
The BT scholarship program allowed me to receive guidance into the professional world, as they offered me mock interviews and searched for employment opportunities that complimented my strengths and allowed me to grow in other areas. Typically, one feels lost or like a number within a contracting company, but BT makes it a goal to make you feel appreciated for the work you do. Not to mention, having financial support during graduate school allowed me to focus on my education without a fear that I would not be able to afford my tuition. The BT graduate scholarship program is something that I would encourage all bilingual SLPs to look into, especially if you want to network with other bilingual professionals and give back to your community. I can’t thank the BT team enough for helping me start my career as an SLP!
