Canadian Hearing Services Scholarship Program

The Canadian Hearing Services National Scholarship Program is uniquely inclusive of Deaf and hard of hearing students of all abilities. Selection criteria are based on community involvement, character references and a demonstrated commitment to transform the lives of Deaf and hard of hearing Canadians–and not on grades or individual student performance indicators.

Scholarships are available for undergraduate and graduate students, including mature students attending accredited post-secondary institutions inside or outside of Canada. Students that receive funding remain eligible for the same level of funding for up to four years.

“Last year, I was a scholarship recipient and I was so grateful and honoured that they chose me to be one. It helped me a lot with the financial burden of going to university,” says Emma, one of our 2019 scholarship winners. “I have three siblings in university, and the scholarship allowed my whole family to lift some financial burdens off their shoulders and allowed me to work less and focus on my studies.”

The scholarships are available to Canadian residents who are at least 17 years of age, and Deaf, Deaf/Blind or hard of hearing. Scholarship grants of $3,000 for full-time students and $1,000 for part-time students may be applied to cover tuition, residence and educational resources.

The financial support provided by our corporate partners and individual donors is an investment in a barrier-free Canada, a life-changing scenario not only for Deaf and hard of hearing students, but for each of us who will benefit from their contributions to society. These scholarships are truly transformational.

A committee of Deaf, hard of hearing and hearing business leaders and academics review applications from across Canada each year. They choose recipients based on key criteria, including student essays about how a scholarship would transform the future.

Canadian Hearing Services is grateful to recognize the 2020 National Scholarship Committee for their passion, commitment and dedication to the cause: Diane Gregoris (Chair), Rex Banks, Nigel Howard, Jim Kyte, Lynn Lockhart-Menzies and Brahm Spilfogel.

Winners of the 2020 scholarship will be announced in September 2020.
