The Tavistock Trust for Aphasia awards its Student Prizes at all universities in the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia, Canada and Ireland that have Speech and Language Therapy departments.
The criterion for the prize is that it is awarded for excellence in work relating to aphasia.
This allows each University to adapt how the prize is awarded according to their approach and programme. The value of each prize is £300.
The original idea behind these prizes was the hope that it might help raise the profile of aphasia amongst the Speech and Language Therapists of the future. Encouragingly, we are told the prizes succeed in this aim, but we are pleased that other benefits have emerged, including:
We are regularly told by recipients how much it means to them to be awarded such a generous and prestigious award.
The Tavistock Trust for Aphasia Special Prize
From the time to time, a student does exceptional work that focuses solely on aphasia, but they are not training to be a Speech and Language Therapist.
On the rare occasion that we are approached by a University about such a student, as long as the criterion of excellence has been met, the Trustees have agreed to consider awarding an additional prize, The Tavistock Trust for Aphasia Student Special Prize. The value of this prize is £250.
Each recipient of The Tavistock Trust for Aphasia Student Prize receives a certificate as part of their prize. This was introduced in 2012.
If you are a past recipient, and you did not receive a certificate but would like one, please contact our administrator: email@example.com. A certificate will be sent you.
The Trustees of the Tavistock Trust for Aphasia would like to thank all the staff and students from all the participating Universities.
We would like to thank the Nigel and Lynne Ross Charitable Trust for its generous support of the New Zealand University prizes, and its contribution to the Australian University prizes.
The Tavistock Trust for Aphasia monitors and reviews the prizes regularly.
