NSSLHA Member Honors are awarded on the basis of scholastic achievement, service to the academic unit, professional conduct, and service to NSSLHA. Beginning in 2004, NSSLHA chapters may nominate one audiology major and one speech-language pathology major from the chapter for Member Honors recognition. The recipient of the Member Honors award receives:
- a certificate from the National Office
- a NSSLHA Honor Cord
- a complimentary registration to attend the ASHA Convention (contingent upon funding—priority given to students that have not registered for the ASHA Convention)
Any college or university junior, senior, or graduate student who is a member of both national NSSLHA and a local chapter is eligible for consideration.
