AG Bell is able to offer several scholarships for full-time students who are deaf and hard of hearing, use listening and spoken language, and who are pursuing a bachelors, masters or doctorate (not law) degree at an accredited mainstream college or university.

 

Eligibility & Requirements

  • Listening and Spoken Language must be the applicant’s primary mode of communication.
  • Hearing loss must have been diagnosed before the applicant’s fourth birthday (pre-lingual hearing loss).
  • Hearing loss must be bilateral and in the moderate to profound range. Applicants must have an unaided Pure-Tone Average (PTA) of 60dB or greater in the better-hearing ear in the speech frequencies of 500, 1000 and 2000 Hz. Applicants with cochlear implants meet this eligibility requirement. Unilateral (one-sided) hearing loss does not qualify.
    Formula for calculating the PTA: On the unaided audiogram, look at the results for the better hearing ear at 500, 1000 and 2000 Hz and add those three numbers together, then divide that total by three. The result is the Pure Tone Average. To be eligible for this program, the applicant’s PTA must be 60 or greater.
  • Applicant must be enrolled in or have applied to a mainstream and accredited college/university as a full-time student. This means that, for the 2012-2013 academic year, the applicant must be a full-time undergraduate or graduate student pursuing a bachelors, masters or doctorate degree at a mainstream college or university.
  • Applicants in the United States must have a minimum cumulative unweighted GPA of 3.25 on a 4.0 scale (equivalent minimums: 4.06 on a 5.0 scale or 81.25 on a scale of 100). For high school seniors, this is a cumulative GPA for grades 9-11 and the first semester of grade 12. For college freshman, this is cumulative GPA for grades 9-12 and the first semester of college. For college sophomores or higher including graduate students, it is the cumulative GPA on college transcripts for all semesters completed.
    Non-U.S. Applicants: Applicants must have a minimum 80% cumulative on their high school or secondary school transcripts. For colleges outside of the United States, applicants must have a ranking equivalent to a minimum 3.25 GPA; for example, for students in the UK, Australia and India, a minimum of an Upper Second Class ranking is required.
  • Applicants may receive a total of two awards through the AG Bell College Scholarship program.

How to Apply

This is a merit-based scholarship program and award selection is extremely competitive; over the past three years 10-12% of applicants were selected to receive an award.

The application packet is available on the college scholarship page of the AG Bell website; you can download or print the packet.

Reward

Anywhere from $500 – $10,000 is awarded to the recipients chosen.

 

Deadline & Annual

Applications are only available during specific times of the year – usually in January with a deadline in the spring.
