The CSD Alumni Chapter seeks nominations for its annual Outstanding Student Award recipient in December of each year. This award will be presented to a deserving CSD student at the annual Mid-South Conference on Communicative Disorders.

Master’s or doctoral candidates who have completed at least three semesters in the University of Memphis School of Communication Sciences and Disorders (formerly School of Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology) are eligible to be nominated. Nominees must have a minimum 3.5 grade point average and demonstrate outstanding clinical skills. Involvement in extracurricular activities will also be considered.

CSD faculty, CSD alumni, and clinical supervisors at external sites may submit nominations. Each nominee must be nominated by both an academic faculty member and a clinical faculty member to be considered for this award. The deadline for nominations is the first Friday in December of each year.
