2020 Sponsor-A-Student Program


Are you a student enrolled in a clinical program or research program relevant to dysphagia? Would you like to attend the upcoming DRS Annual Meeting in San Juan, Puerto Rico?


Created in 2018, The Sponsor a Student Program is a scholarship competition aimed at fostering the development of dysphagia trainees and spreading dysphagia awareness within the community through the submission and streaming of applicant video-testimonials. The Sponsor a Student Program allows members of the public, DRS members and the DRS Community donate to the Sponsor a Student Education Fund to offer scholarships to support students to attend the DRS Annual Meeting each year. The funding amount and the number of scholarship recipients is dependent on donations received.

Interested applicants should complete the attached form (found below) and create a two-minute video about themselves and their research in dysphagia to be considered.


The deadline to submit your video is September 14, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. CST. Make your donation today by clicking here! Voting will take place from September 15-October 21, 2019. All individuals who donate $5 or more to the Sponsor-A-Student Education Fund will be eligible to cast their vote during this time. Winners of the Sponsor-A-Student Program will be announced on October 24, 2019. If you have  any additional questions about the Sponsor-A-Student Program, please contact the DRS office at 920-560-5624 or email us at (not .com).


This is a great opportunity to attend the meeting and celebrate your dysphagia research journey. All winners will be recognized at the 2020 DRS Annual Meeting Awards Reception.

Good luck!
