Chenot, John R. and Margaret Wade Endowed Research Fund
The John R. and Margaret Wade Chenot Endowed Research Fund was established by Mrs. John R. (Margaret Wade) Chenot in loving tribute to her late husband. Mr. Chenot, a World War II veteran, suffered hearing impairment as a result of his service in the artillery. It is Mrs. Chenot's intention, through this gift, to assist others through support for research related to hearing impairment. The John R. and Margaret Wade Chenot Endowed Research Fund, established in 1995, provides the School of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology with vital resources for this important purpose.
Selection of projects eligible for funding are made by the Dean of the College of Fine and Applied Arts (or designee), the Director of the School of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, and one faculty member selected each year by the faculty. At least one of these three individuals must be an audiologist. For consideration, projects must have potential benefit for the needs of the hearing-impaired. Special preference will be given to collaborative efforts that focus additional skills or resources on the needs of the hearing-impaired. However, any collaborative efforts must have at least one member of the department working on the project.
