Winner’s story: Jenessa Banwell

I would encourage students to take full advantage of their time while at an AASP conference; attend guest speakers’ sessions, engage in professional opportunities such as “Meet the Professionals Luncheon”, and attend pertinent oral and/or poster sessions related to your work. There’s something of value to be learned through every experience!

Winner’s story: Jeff Baxter

I would tell future applicants for this award to put time into the process and just go for it. The culmination of the conference, presenting my work, and making new meaningful connections were an amazing experience!

Winner’s story: Heather Dial

As an early-stage researcher, it can be quite intimidating to present your research to some of the biggest names in your field that have been doing this type of research since before you were born! The prize allowed me to go to the Academy of Aphasia conference with a greater amount of confidence in my work.
