The Julie S. Kelly Memorial Scholarship

Julie S. Kelly Memorial Scholarlship

In memory of our treasured colleague, Julie S. Kelly, OSSPEAC has established a scholarship fund for graduating high school seniors pursuing a post-secondary education (university, college, and/or technical school). Since Julie was an audiologist dedicated to helping people with hearing impairments in many ways and believed in furthering one’s education, this scholarship will be awarded to a high school senior who has a hearing impairment that will be pursuing further educational endeavors.


A scholarship of $2000.00 will be awarded to one high school senior. These monies are to cover tuition, books and /or supplies. The requirements are not based on financial need. The applicant must include all documentation with their application form. The documentation needed:

  1. Documentation of hearing impairment – recent audiogram performed within a year from the application date and by a licensed audiologist
  2. Transcript of high school grades – a GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale
  3. Two letters of recommendation from professional, employer or school authorities
  4. Acceptance letter from the post-high school institution the student will be attending

The OSSPEAC member sponsoring the student must provide additional comments concerning the qualities of the student.


DEADLINE: April 15th

Those members or interested parties who would like to make a contribution to the scholarship fund, please send your check payable to OSSPEAC with a check memo that states: Kelly Scholarship to 205 Glendale Street, LaGrange, Ohio  44050.
