Aid the Silent considers applications for financial support from educators who work with deaf/hard-of-hearing children/teens ages 2-18
WHEN IS THE DEADLINE?
We have a rolling deadline. You may apply anytime the need arises.
HOW MANY TIMES CAN I APPLY FOR FINANCIAL SUPPORT AS AN EDUCATOR?
Applications are accepted infinitely on a case-by-case basis.
ARE THERE ANY GEOGRAPHIC RESTRICTIONS ON WHO CAN BE AWARDED?
While we assist educators all over the United States, the majority of our funding will be awarded to our local communities in Texas. We suggest you apply anyway.
HOW ARE FUNDS DISPERSED?
Funds are distributed directly to the school or district.
Aid the Silent DOES NOT fund computers and/or laptops for classroom or teacher’s personal use. Computers and laptops are considered general purpose educational equipment and should be funded directly through the school system. Tablets will be considered on a limited basis for specific programs related to deaf students for communication purposes where federal and state funding do not apply.
