ASL Scholarship Program

The ASL Honor Society is proud to sponsor the first nationwide scholarships available to students majoring or minoring in ASL, Deaf Studies, Deaf Education, and Interpreter Preparation. Current scholarship amounts range between $1,750.00 and $2,500.00 each. Scholarships are offered to students who will begin college in the fall, or are currently enrolled. Applicants must have an active chapter of the ASL Honor Society on campus to be eligible. Under no circumstances will scholarships be awarded to students from campuses that are not members of the ASL Honor Society.

Suggestions for applicants:

  • Document your community service
  • Participate in the Deaf Art and / or the ASL Literature competitions
  • Have someone proof-read your ASL and English essays before submitting your application packet
