Previous Recipients of the Distinguished Scholar Awards

Recipients for 2019

“It may be helpful to know I was recently promoted to full professor  and I used this external award to support my case for excellence across multiple areas of my career.  This places me in a great position to manage impactful research and grants.  It has meant so much!” Dr Sarah E Wallace, Duquesne University

“This Award has had a great impact on my career.  When members of our local aphasia group found out that I had won the Award, they were thrilled.  One of the spouses wrote to me to congratulate me to share how proud she was.  She included in the letter “we are grateful to have you on our side.”  That’s how I feel about the Tavistock Trust for Aphasia when it comes to valuing researchers who want to change the social and emotional implications of aphasia.  Thanks for being on our side.”  Dr Jamie Azios, Lamar University

“Because of this Award, I was invited to showcase my research in April 2019 at the CMU Faculty Excellence Exhibition where I shared my work on the “My Story” project protocol.  The recognition for my work and the Award has increased my visibility and I have been invited to present at the Aphasia Institute’s Knowledge Exchange Series, in October 2020.”  Dr Katie Strong, Central Michigan University
