The SJSU Lurie College of Education provides a range of grants to students to support their academic endeavors to become transformative educators, counselors, therapists, and leaders. We spoke with Communicative Disorders and Sciences students Alexandra (Ali) Murueta, Liz Cagle, and Michelle Ballou after they attended the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Convention to learn more about their experiences and how it shaped them going forward. Give their insights a listen below!

“I really encourage any of the students in the CDS program to apply for the ASHA convention sponsorship next year and any other student who is contemplating going for a scholarship or sponsorship just to go for it and take the plunge because it really is life changing.”
