Hammond for Hope Scholarships uplift graduate students, hearing loss community
Receiving $10,000 and $5,000 Hammond for Hope Scholarships were life-changers for Kayla Pope and Caroline Davis, respectively, who are both second-year graduate students in the Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSDS) program at Georgia Southern University.
“Earning this scholarship has given me a feeling of financial security, and has taken away a great deal of anxiety centered around tuition and cost of living,” said Pope. “As a newlywed who fully supports myself through school, it is an understatement to say that I appreciate this scholarship. Throughout my graduate school career, I have kept a job as a waitress as much as possible, but it has proven difficult with our rigorous program; the Hammond for Hope Scholarship has helped me to spend more time on my schoolwork and less time working. It is truly an incredible honor!” Read full story.
