Sertoma Scholarships Available

February 15, 2017

Each year, Sertoma provides 100 scholarships through our Deaf and Hard of Hearing and Communicative Disorders scholarships. These scholarships aid students who are continuing their education, and because of the financial support of donors like you, we are able to continue our vision of creating communities of change.

The Communicative Disorders scholarship is open to all full-time audiology or speech-language pathology graduate students in the United States. March 31 is the deadline for all Communicative Disorders scholarship applications, and each scholarship is worth $1,000. Applicants may reapply each year as long as they meet the scholarship requirements. Click here to learn more about the Communicative Disorders scholarship.

The Deaf and Hard of Hearing scholarship is open to graduating high school seniors and current undergraduate students who have a minimum bilateral hearing loss of 40dB. Students must be pursuing a full-time bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA of 3.2. The application deadline is May 1. Applicants may re-apply each year as long as they meet the scholarship requirements. Click here to learn more about the Deaf and Hard of Hearing scholarship.

    I have a widowed neighbor who is financially improvised. Her daughter bout her a hearing aid a few years ago but she recently lost it.
    Are there Sertoma resources to help her obtain a new hearing aid.
    The quality of her life would be immensely improved.

      Hi Joseph,

      We do have a list of resources that may be able to help your neighbor. For starters, we suggest exploring state and national resources, which can be found here: http://www.hearingaiddonations.org/resources/

      If she is still struggling to find assistance, the Hearing Aid Project is a great organization to look into as well: http://www.hearingaiddonations.org/

      We hope these resources help! Please let us know if you have any questions. Best of luck.

      Sincerely,
      Sertoma Inc.
