Bertram L. Ashe Educational Foundation 2024 Scholarship Award

The Bertram L. Ashe Education Foundation was pleased to award their 2024 scholarship to Jada Augustine.


Jada Augustine, University of California at Los Angeles

Jada Augustine will begin her studies as a doctoral student at UCLA this fall with a focus researching the impact of Black educators on Special Education and specifically how to retain more Black educators. “Receiving the Ashe Foundation Scholarship will support my academic journey and amplify my ability to contribute to the field of speech pathology and special education. With this support, I can pursue research that will impact others. I will also be able to mentor future speech-language pathologists and special educators, sharing my knowledge and experience to prepare them for the challenges and rewards of working within these fields.”

We congratulate Jada on her award and are happy to assist her on her academic journey.
