George H. Nofer Scholarship for Law and Public Policy (Deadline: April 22, 2016)

Submitted by

Who Can Apply:

  • Applicant uses spoken language as the primary mode of communication.
  • Applicant has a pre-lingual hearing loss (diagnosed prior to the fourth birthday).
  • Applicant’s hearing loss is bilateral and in the moderately severe 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. Individuals 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 award, the applicant’s PTA must be 60 or greater.
  • Applicant has been accepted to or is enrolled in an accredited law school or masters/doctoral program in public policy or public administration as a full-time graduate student for the  academic year beginning in the fall following the application period
