Hearing impaired students residing in Ada County, Idaho receive educational scholarships to further their education and support long term independence. The Hearing Scholarships support advanced education in a four year college program or a technical school. The initial educational scholarship will be based on a combination of financial need of the applicant, scholastic and leadership ability and extra-curricular activity such as the arts, athletics, journalism, and school or community service. Upon receiving confirmation of recipient’s acceptance into the school of their choice, Assistance League of Boise will forward a check directly to the institution where the money will be distributed by quarter or semester.
