The scholarship is open nationally to high school seniors who have a hearing loss, which requires the use of hearing aid(s) in their daily life. The purpose of this scholarship is to help students with hearing challenges reach their full potential by giving them the gift of sound. This will further allow the students to build confidence and self-esteem as they prepare to begin their college or vocational school education. The recipient of this scholarship will be selected by an independent group of judges to be determined by Help America Hear Inc., a 501c3 Not for Profit Corporation.
The scholarship will award one student per school year, currently wearing hearing aid(s). Cochlear users may enter this and will only receive the financial award. 5 scholarship recipients will receive two state-of-the-art ReSound Hearing Aids which best fit his/her hearing loss, along with a $2,000 Scholarship to the student’s college or vocational school of choice.
