Main Digest

The Cochlear UK Graeme Clark Scholarship 2009 available to Nucleus cochlear implant recipients nationwide is open for applications.

This article is from our digest of publications relating to Disability Scholarships that also includes:

The award, set up to support implant recipients financially when they continue further education at an accredited institution, is the perfect opportunity for the winner to advance their career.

The scholarship is open to UK residents who have been implanted with a Nucleus CI at a UK implant center. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of academic achievement and a demonstrated commitment to the Cochlear ideals of compassion and benevolence.

Entrants must be 18 years or over at application deadline, (15 September '09) currently completing their final year of school or sixth form college and have been accepted onto a university or other tertiary education course. The winners will be awarded 6,000, paid in two installments.

Last year's winner was Amanprit Johal, whose scholarship helped her to continue her BSc degree in Geography with Urban and Regional Planning. Amanprit from Birmingham, who was presented with her award by the Lord Mayor, said: "I'm over the moon! Words can't describe what an honor it is to accept the scholarship. The award is above all an emotional support, showing that my efforts and continuous learning have been worth it."

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.

A cochlear implant is an implantable device that can enhance hearing and speech abilities for individuals with severe to profound hearing loss.
