From the beginning, Hearing Milestones has seen the need to contribute to the community of children with hearing loss. First and foremost, we are here to empower this generation of children. Hearing loss is a part of who the child is, but it does not define who they are or who they will become.
We do not have to become heroes overnight. Just a step at a time, meeting each thing that comes up...discovering we have the strength to stare it down.” - Eleanor Roosevelt
As Educational Audiologists and Deaf/Hard of Hearing Teachers (D/HH) we know first hand of students who are in need of support at different times in their lives. Times where you’ve purchase supplies on your own to help a student so they had what they needed to succeed in school. Or perhaps you have a student who has been accepted into college or entering the workforce and is in need of some resources to assist them in their next milestone. Maybe you have a student who needs to be seen medically for audiological care, but for financial reasons is not able too.
This is a yearly, $500.00 scholarship for 3 individuals working with students with hearing loss. Each recipient will receive $500.00. Recipient may use the funds for students with hearing loss (assisting high school students on their next milestones, providing a student in need with tools and resources to gain access to auditory information in the classroom, etc). Hearing Milestones provides the funding for the scholarships. At this time, once you are notified as one of the three scholar recipients, you are no longer eligible for any future scholarships.
All scholarship applications and requested materials must emailed and received by Hearing Milestones by 4:00 pm Central Standard Time on May 1st each year. If the deadline falls on a weekend, the following Monday will be used as the deadline date.
The following items are required to complete the application process.
NOTIFICATION TO RECIPIENTS
Scholarship recipients will be notified by July 30th of each year. We only notify recipients, no notification means the student did not receive the scholarship. We cannot send out lists of recipients to those who do not receive a scholarship.
