Students

Students can take advantage of many opportunities to learn and network at the ASHA Convention.

Student Volunteers

ASHA uses students to assist in various volunteer roles onsite during the in-person ASHA Convention. As a student volunteer, you will have the opportunity to meet and network with your peers and ASHA members.

The deadline to apply to be a student volunteer was September 9, 2021. All applicants were notified via email on October 1, 2021. Please check your spam, junk, or quarantine folders if you did not receive your acceptance/non-acceptance notification. If you have questions about volunteering, please contact us at papers@asha.org.

The Program Planner and mobile app allow you to search by topic to find sessions that interest you. You can also search by special audience to find sessions identified by the Convention Program Committee to be of interest to students; filter by instructional level to find introductory sessions; or search by author to locate presentations by faculty or fellow students whom you know.
