Scholarships and Funding
Cochlear Graeme Clark Scholarship
Professor Graeme Clark is the Professor of the Department of Otolaryngology at the University of Melbourne. It is the pioneering work of his university department that led to the first multi-channel research implant “bionic ear” being “switched on” in 1978 and the first Nucleus implant in 1982. His lifelong commitment to finding a solution for the hearing impaired has resulted in a revolution not only for those with a profound hearing loss but also their family and friends. The Graeme Clark Scholarship is a unique award open to Nucleus cochlear implant recipients around the world. Five awards are available in total, one for each region shown below.
The awards aim to support implant recipients financially when they continue further education at an accredited institution.
Applicants must be one of the following:
- Currently completing their final year of school and who have been accepted onto a university or other tertiary education course or
- Mature students who have been accepted onto a university or other tertiary education course or
- Students currently undertaking a university degree or other tertiary education.
Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic achievement and a demonstrated commitment to the Cochlear ideals of compassion and benevolence.
