    Updated: April 2nd, 2024

    When it comes to earning a degree, being a deaf student can be difficult. Our school system is geared towards the hearing, which leaves many deaf students out. Thankfully, there are scholarships for hearing-impaired and deaf students to earn financial aid for higher education. No matter what kind of school you came from, nor where you’re headed, there is money for you.

    Some of the scholarships below have qualifications for the extremity of hearing loss, and some don’t. Some apply widely to all students with disabilities. We then review some popular schools for the deaf, many of which offer their own financial aid programs. So, the short answer to “how to get scholarships for hearing impairment” is this: Do your research and apply for all the scholarships you qualify for!

    Scholarship Review Process

    The Scholarships360 Research Team reviews all scholarships individually and strives to exclude any scholarship where any of the below applies:

    • The scholarship requires a fee to apply
    • The scholarship provider’s privacy policy allows for the misuse of student data
    • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)
    • Student are required to sign up for a site or service to apply*
    • The scholarship seems primarily used for lead generation** or idea harvesting purposes***
    • The scholarship website has many grammatical errors and/or advertisements
    • The scholarship or scholarship providing organization seem untrustworthy
    • There is no evidence the scholarship was previously awarded
    • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months
    • There is no available contact information

    If you believe a scholarship has been published in error, please reach out to [email protected] and we’ll take a look!


    * There are certain exceptions to this, for example if the sponsoring organization is a major corporation or nonprofit with its own scholarship application system.
    ** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
    ***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.

    How to win scholarships for hearing impaired students

    Focus on your essay

    For scholarships that require a written component, your chances of winning will go way up if you take the time to write a thoughtful and compelling essay. If writing isn’t your thing, don’t worry! We have many resources to help you, including the following guides: 

    Go local 

    Searching for scholarships at the local level is a great way to boost your chances of winning an award. Local scholarships are typically less competitive because they’re only open to students from a specific area. Check with your high school guidance office to see if they are any businesses or organizations in your local community that offer scholarships for hearing-impaired students. To learn more, check out our guide on how to win local scholarships.

    Colleges and universities for the deaf and hearing impaired

    These schools use American Sign Language (ASL) as their primary language. They are dedicated to honoring the needs of deaf and hearing-impaired students. As mentioned earlier, these institutions offer their own financial aid, which could be combined with any of the previously listed scholarships. 

    Rochester Institute of Technology

    The Rochester Institute of Technology houses the National Institute for the Deaf (NTID) which provides a wide range of scholarships for attending students. Interested applicants should contact NTID’s office of financial aid for more detailed information.

    Gallaudet University

    Gallaudet University prides itself as “the only university in the world where students live and learn in ASL and English”. And they offer plenty of financial aid for this unique educational opportunity. They administer a full ride scholarship, as well as other scholarships ranging from $6,000 to $12,000.

    Howard College

    Howard College is home to SouthWest College for the Deaf (SWCD). SWCD uses Howard’s scholarship database to offer numerous financial aid opportunities for its students.

    American Sign Language Programs

    On top of schools specifically for the deaf, many institutions offer ASL programs. US News has compiled a list of these. All the listed schools have their own financial aid opportunities. Whether you want a school designed for deaf students, or any other kind of school, you’re sure to find scholarship money. We wish you luck on your journey!
