Sertoma’s Scholarship for the Hard of Hearing or Deaf, is the leading funder of scholarships for hard of hearing or deaf students since the program’s inception in 1994. Students with clinically significant bilateral hearing loss, graduating from high school, or undergraduate students pursuing four-year college degrees in any discipline are eligible for the scholarship.
Sertoma’s Communicative Disorders Scholarship, funded by the Sertoma Annual Fund, is for graduate students pursing advanced degrees in audiology or speech-language pathology from institutions in the U.S. These scholarships, worth $1,000 each, are awarded in the spring to help offset the cost of tuition, books and fees incurred during the following school year. Sertoma’s Communicative Disorders Scholarships provides more funds nationally for graduate level study in communicative disorders than any other single organization.
Each year, Sertoma raises funds to support our scholarships and other hearing health programs. Over the past ten years, the Annual Fund has provided over 800 scholarships, more than $1,000,000 in grants, and provided information to more than 300,000 individuals on how to protect their hearing. Sertoma provides more funds nationally for graduate students studying communicative disorders than any other single organization.
