Speech and Hearing Sciences graduate student Marika King has been selected to receive a Student Research Travel Award (SRTA) to attend the ASHA Annual Convention in Chicago, Illinois, in November. This award is given to the highest-rated ASHA Convention papers—with a student as first author— in each of the 26 topic categories.

The purpose of the SRTA is to highlight the research activities of students and encourage careers in science and research. As an award recipient, Marika will receive a $500 stipend and complimentary Convention registration to help defray costs associated with attending the Convention. 

Marika began working with Dr. Cathy Binger in her lab as an undergraduate, and has continued on in the lab as a graduate student project assistant.  Way to go, Marika!
