Established in 1975, the Scholarship Trust for the Hearing Impaired provides financial aid to people with deafness or hearing deficiencies.

To date, we’ve helped thousands of people with hearing deficiencies get the help and resources they need, including hearing devices, specialized treatments, speech classes, note-takers, interpreters, and more.

Persons who experience deafness or a hearing deficiency may receive an application for aid here. Completed applications must be submitted to the Trust by the end of each quarter: March 31st, June 30th, September 30th, and December 31st. Selection of recipients and amount of aid awarded is decided upon by the majority of the Trustees, and special consideration is given to individuals with the greatest need.

You can also join us providing opportunities to those with hearing deficiencies with a gift of support. All contributions to the Trust are tax deductible.

Roughly 20% of Americans—well over 48 million—have some degree of hearing loss. We want to make sure they are getting the help they need and the respect they deserve.
