Scholarships for College Bound Students with Hearing Loss

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!

About the Hear Me Out Blog

Itinerant teachers of the deaf (TOD) provide direct services to children with hearing loss in mainstream schools, consultation to their teachers, and professional development to school staff. Itinerant TODs travel to a child’s neighborhood school to provide one-on-one educational support, foster listening and spoken language development, and help children build social and self-advocacy skills. They also act as a liaison between the family and their mainstream school. Hear Me Out provides a unique forum for these special teachers to share their experiences as they grow as professionals.

This scholarship opportunity is really neat because everyone deserves a chance to go to school. School can be really expensive for someone with hearing loss. I wonder how much extra do they have to pay for school stuff.

Many of my students have been able to receive decent financial aid / scholarship packages depending on the schools they choose. In my experience transitioning students from high school to college, with good grades and through conversations with the financial and and disability offices, they can do pretty well. Massachusetts also offers financial support for students with hearing loss who choose to attend a state college through Mass Rehab.We've been able to get FM, captioning, and CART for students at most colleges as well!


This list of Scholarships in india is very valuable for students, i want to say & all students get & share this valuable information. Help yourself & others.
