Current Truman students can apply for scholarships established through the Truman State University Foundation which works hard to find alumni and friends who value the hard work and dedication Truman students put toward their education. Applications for these donor-funded scholarships are available several times a year. An online application can be found on TruView under the Student tab, Student Finances, Scholarships, Foundation Scholarship Applications.

I am in the Communication Disorders graduate program at Truman. During my time here, I have been able to serve multiple individuals of a variety of ages in the Truman State University Speech and Hearing Clinic. I have also had the opportunity to study abroad with my department in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, where we provided hearing and speech screenings to children in orphanages, a school and daycare for children with disabilities. After graduation I plan to return home to Lincoln, Nebraska, where I would like to work as a speech therapist in a school setting. As an out-of-state student, this scholarship really helps me out!
