Scholarship Open to Graduating Deaf and Hard of Hearing High School Seniors- Deadline to Apply: May 13, 2022
Now in its fourth year, the TDI Communication Access Scholarship Program is accepting applications. This program is available to all deaf and hard-of-hearing students graduating from high school this year. The scholarship application encourages deaf and hard-of-hearing students to innovate and bring forth ideas for addressing the communication challenges that the deaf and hard-of-hearing community faces.
“We hope that through disbursing scholarship, more deaf and hard of hearing youth leaders are given a headstart to making an impact on advocating for accessibility, equity, and inclusion in information and communications technology,” said Mei Kennedy, TDI Scholarship chairperson. “Last year, we awarded six outstanding individuals and hope to see a growing number of applicants.”
“We are thrilled to continue providing scholarships to students pursuing their post-secondary education. TDI appreciates Ultratec, Sorenson, ZP Better Together, and Hamilton‘s continued support to this program ” noted Eric Kaika, CEO of TDI
All deaf and hard of hearing graduating high school seniors can apply online at TDIforAccess.org/Scholarship before May 13, 2022. Applications can also be mailed and must be postmarked by the deadline. Applicants will be notified before September of the award.
