The Hearing Loss Association of Florida announces the second annual Joan Andrews Scholarship. Joan Andrews, former president of the Florida Association of Self Help for Hard of Hearing People, now known as the Hearing Loss Association of Florida, worked tirelessly to improve the quality of life for individuals with hearing loss. The Scholarship will be awarded to an individual who demonstrates in writing (by completion of the application process) a sincere educational interest in and commitment to sharing the mission of the Hearing Loss Association with others affected by hearing loss. The Selection Committee will give priority consideration to an applicant who meets all the criteria as set forth in the application process AND who cannot afford to attend the HLAA convention without the assistance of this scholarship.
The scholarship will entitle the winner to a registration to the Hearing Loss Association of America convention in Milwaukee, WI from June 17-20, 2010. The scholarship will also include a room at the convention hotel for three nights and round trip airfare or automobile travel expense between Florida and Milwaukee, WI. The maximum value of the scholarship is $1,000.00. The winner is responsible for making all travel, hotel and convention registration arrangements.
An applicant must be a Florida resident and member in good standing of the Hearing Loss Association of America. Current members of the HLA-FL Board of Trustees are not eligible.
The deadline for receipt by HLA-FL of the completed application is March 15, 2010. For more information and/or to receive an application, please contact Joan Haber, Scholarship Committee, firstname.lastname@example.org or call 941-921-9197.
