The Gallaudet-Nippon World Leadership (WDL) Scholarship makes it possible for deaf and hard of hearing leaders from developing nations to attend Gallaudet University. WDL aims to empower selected individuals through the knowledge of skills, attitudes, and aspirations that higher education brings so that they can make significant contributions to their deaf community and nation. WDL is funded by the Nippon Foundation of Tokyo, Japan. Since making its first award in 2003, 16 WDL scholarships have been awarded. See them here.
The Sasakawa International Scholarship (SIS) Fund provides financial assistance to qualified, deserving, deaf international students who are enrolled in at least their second year of a degree-granting program at Gallaudet University to help ensure they have the financial means to complete their degree and graduate. To be eligible for the scholarship, students must be residents of developing countries.
( Please note that the list of developing countries is updated annually in July by the U.S. Education of the Deaf Act of 1986, as amended.) See previous Sasakawa scholars here.
Gallaudet University is a federally chartered private and premier university for the deaf and hard of hearing since 1864.
