UPDATED: Scholarships for College Bound Students

College is expensive! Working with several students who have transitioned from high school to college has made that clear. Luckily there are many scholarships specifically for students with hearing loss.

Below are links to scholarships that I’ve gathered over the years. I share these with my high school seniors (and often help them fill out the applications) and I encourage you to share them with your students as well. Many have deadlines in the next few months so let’s pass them along!

This scholarship is specifically for Clarke School alumni. Any student who attended any Clarke program for any length of time is eligible!

This is an opportunity for students who are deaf, hard of hearing, deaf-blind or have difficulty speaking in various states, including California, District of Columbia, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Washington.

For students with a significant bilateral hearing loss (generally requiring at least a 50 dB unaided hearing loss in both ears). 

For students with a minimum 40dB bilateral hearing loss.

This scholarship is open to Cochlear Nucleus® implant recipients.

For persons who are deaf or hard of hearing, or the families of children who are deaf or hard of hearing. 

For students with any disability who plan to major in a technology-related field.

And More!
