School-Age Financial Aid Program—2019
The School-Age Financial Aid program is for students with a pre-lingual bilateral hearing loss in the moderately-severe to profound range who use listening and spoken language. Students must be entering grades one through twelve for the 2019-2020 school year at a parochial, independent or private mainstream school. Awards are intended to assist with educational costs such as tuition, books, equipment, room and board, auditory and speech language support services, academic tutoring, transportation, and other school-related expenses. This program is not applicable for students who are being homeschooled, attend public school or are in college.
These are one-time awards made generally in the month of July for the upcoming school year. Award amounts vary; in 2018, awards ranged from $600 to $2,000.
