Deadline: February 16th at 11:59pm


AUCD is pleased to announce the availability of 8 scholarships of up to $500 each to support LEND audiology trainees in attending the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) Annual Conference on March 17-19, 2024.


All current LEND audiology trainees are eligible to apply. However, priority will be given to trainees that have not attended the EHDI Conference in previous years.

Receiving Funds

Trainees (or their program) are expected to pay all registration costs associated with their meeting attendance upfront and in their entirety. Awardees must fulfill all responsibilities (see items below) and submit a proper reimbursement form and relevant receipts to AUCD not later than 30 days after the end of the meeting or by April 19, 2024. This date is a firm deadline and submitting expenses after this may result in an awardee not receiving the scholarship funds. The reimbursement form and submission instructions will be provided to awardees upon notification. 

Allowable Expenses

Scholarship funds can be used to cover the costs of coach class air or reasonable ground travel, hotel accommodations, food, and presentation materials (e.g., poster printing and shipping). AUCD reserves the right to deny reimbursement requests for items on a case-by-case basis. Conference registration and alcoholic beverages are not allowable expenses under any circumstances.
