"The PSU Laurels Graduate Award was instituted to provide recognition and financial support to the best and brightest students and to enhance enrollment diversity. The program provides an award to competitively selected, academically meritorious graduate degree students in all fields. This program includes financial need as a consideration for the selection of some of these awards." Jennifer is finishing up her first year in our graduate program and part of our bilingual concentration program. She has a passion for working with adult disordered populations as well as multicultural populations. She will be going to Ecuador this summer with classmates and faculty to serve children and adults with speech and language disorders. Congratulations Jennifer, well deserved!
