Gallaudet employees and their immediate families may be eligible for a substantial amount of tuition waivers, significantly reducing the cost of attending Gallaudet.
Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) provides services and funding to deaf and hard of hearing individuals in an effort to help them obtain full-time employment. Each U.S. state manages its own VR resources and supports, but in many cases, VR funding can be applied toward higher education.
After initiating a relationship with your state’s VR agency, connect them with Gallaudet’s internal specialists to explore what funding may be available to you. More than half of Gallaudet’s current students take advantage of this wonderful free resource!
Gallaudet University, chartered in 1864, is a private university for deaf and hard of hearing students.
