ILAA Student Board

About Us

The Illinois Academy of Audiology (ILAA) is proud to welcome and support student members from the five wonderful audiology doctoral programs in the state.  Student support takes the form of scholarships, research support, volunteer and leadership opportunities, and guidance in the transition from student to professional life. Student members join us on legislative outreach trips and help to judge state science fair entries.

Networking

ILAA members are invited to monthly networking events across the state. 

Student members have the opportunity to network with other students and current audiologists at conferences.
