Canadian Hearing Society Scholarship Program

The Canadian Hearing Society proudly offers scholarships to Deaf and hard of hearing students to help break down barriers to higher education and build brighter futures.

Scholarships of $3,000 a year for full-time students and $1,000 a year for part-time students are awarded to top qualified candidates who are pursuing post-secondary education at an accredited institution, inside or outside of Canada. Awards may cover tuition, residence or educational resources. Additionally, CHS is making a commitment to award this year’s winners with up to four years in funding to help remove as many financial barriers as possible, and to significantly reduce the stress of finding funding each year. The exact number of awards will be dependent on the number and ranking of qualified applicants.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Applicants must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada;
  • Have documented hearing loss of 50dB or greater, pure tone average, in each ear (50dB or greater in the left ear AND 50dB or greater in the right ear);
  • Applicants must be 17 years of age or older and attending an accredited post-secondary institution in the Fall of 2022 as first-time or returning students.
