Special Notes

The James R. Larson and Vicki Lord Larson Undergraduate Research Fellowship was created and funded in 2016 by Vicki Lord Larson, PhD, CCC-SLP, Vice Chancellor Emerita, and a member of the UW-Eau Claire Foundation Board. She received her bachelor's, master's, and doctorate degrees from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Communications Sciences and Disorders.

Vicki met her husband, Jim, while they were both students at UW-Madison. Both were strong supporters of higher education and the advancement of research in a chosen discipline. Jim, who passed away in 2004, was her source of support and encouragement throughout her career.
