CRE ICHEAR Scholarships

Purpose of the Scholarship

Hearing loss associated with persistent middle ear infection (otitis media – OM) during a child’s formative year’s causes language and speech delay, auditory processing disorder, social isolation and educational disadvantage. For Indigenous children across Australia, hearing loss is having a devastating impact on social development and educational achievement.

The CRE ICHEAR is offering scholarships to support Honours, Masters and PhD students to undertake research in the field of ear and hearing health. Working as part of the CRE ICHEAR research team, scholarship holders will be supported by Australia’s leading researchers and medical practitioners in the field of child ear and hearing health.
