Malcolm Hough Fraser Community Service Award

The Malcolm Hough Fraser Community Service Award is presented to an individual in the community as a living tribute to a man who has contributed greatly to the field of communicative disorders.

This honor is presented to a student who exhibits some of the valued qualities that Louise possessed to include being a client-centered clinician with sensitivity for clients and families; one who recognizes the uniqueness in all individuals; and is ever investigating his/her self as a person. A monetary award accompanies a plaque for the recipient.

Marion G. Evans Award

The Marion G. Evans award is currently given to a deserving, third-year Doctor of Audiology (AuD) student.

In most years the award was divided between two students or most recently among three. The scholarship is awarded on the basis of clinical performance, academic performance, a stated commitment to Pediatric Audiology, and financial need.
