Millie Brother Scholarship for Hearing Children of Deaf Adults

Millie Brother Scholarship for Hearing Children of Deaf Adults (CODA)

The Children of Deaf Adults organization would like to call your attention
to the Millie Brother Scholarship available to provide financial support for
hearing children of Deaf adults to attend college.

Since 1990, we have awarded scholarships to 36 hearing children of deaf
adults. This year we are pleased to be able to award two $3,000
scholarships. These are one-time scholarships, but you may apply for as
many years as the applicant is in school.

Below is a copy of the scholarship announcement. Please share the
announcement with your employees, students and alums and encourage any
hearing college-bound adolescent or adult with Deaf parents to apply for the
scholarship. More information about the scholarship can be found at:

We count on you to spread the word about our scholarship. If you have any
questions, do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected].
