OSWD recognizes that there are disability-related costs a student faces, above and beyond tuition, fees, room and board. OSWD students often have to deal with additional expenses not incurred by other students. They may include the cost of specialized adaptive equipment, expenses for personal use (such as readers or attendant care providers), transportation costs necessary to pursue an academic program, and medical expenses relating directly to the student's disabilities that are not covered by insurance.
OSWD makes every effort to provide financial assistance to students who are able to demonstrate that they are in need of assistance in order to continue their education at Gallaudet University. Staff members at OSWD work closely with on-campus departments and off-campus organizations and state agencies to help students receive the optimal benefits for which they are eligible.
The Newcombe Scholarship Foundation, a privately funded scholarship organization, provides financial assistance to deaf students with disabilities who qualify for funding. A needs-based scholarship, Newcombe funds are awarded to eligible students each academic semester. Contingent upon semester’s funds, students may receive up to $2,000 per semester.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
