Student Grant Program
Since 2006 Australian Lions Hearing Dogs has run a program aimed at helping deaf or hard of hearing primary school children across Australia by supplying Sound Field Systems free of charge. This program has seen Australian Lions Hearing Dogs donate over $1,000,000 worth of hardware to deaf and hard of hearing students nationwide.
2018 will see this program evolve and widen its scope, to help deaf and hard of hearing youth up to the age of 25, by offering individual grants that may be used to achieve academic or sporting aspirations.
Grants of up to $2500 are open to Australian citizens or permanent residents who are deaf or have permanent hearing loss up to the age of 25 as of the closing date of 31 October 2018. Grants will be awarded in early 2019.
