National Technical Institute for the Deaf Scholarship Listings

Rochester Institute of Technology National Technical Institute for the Deaf Scholarship Listings

This is a very comprehensive listing of scholarships for deaf, hard of hearing and late-deafened students. If you are interested in higher education, you should explore as many of these as appear relevant for you. Even if it does not appear relevant to you, you should go ahead and check it out, as many scholarships go unawarded due to a lack of applicants. Read the website completely, including the history of the organization, to help you compose an essay that they will be likely to accept. If they offer information on previous winners or previous essays, be sure to read them and heed them.

Don’t hesitate to contact the people offering the scholarship and ask questions before you submit your application. Not all listings appear to be current, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t still in business. Also ask about other scholarships that one scholarship may be aware of. You may turn up some leads that you wouldn’t have otherwise.

Abide by deadlines, but if you have a good reason for missing one, go ahead and contact them and ask if you might be able to apply late, and be prepared to explain why. Even if you don’t have a good reason, go ahead and ask as they may not have had any applications and will be glad to get yours.
