Sports Scholarship

We are pleased to announce that the annual Advanced Bionics (AB) sports scholarship scheme is currently open for applications.

Advanced Bionics innovations let you fully live your life with no limitations. From sandy beaches to snowy mountains to muddy fields, AB recipients can enjoy the best possible hearing anytime, anywhere and during any activity.

If you are passionate about playing sport, have an important competition coming up or even want to encourage other cochlear implant recipients to play sport, then why not apply for funding through our sports scholarship scheme?

 

You don’t have to play sport at a competitive level to apply, anyone who plays an individual or team sport at any level can apply. All we ask is that you are passionate about playing sport and willing to promote sport to other cochlear implant recipients.

Last year, AB proudly supported Rod Oaten, who competed in The World Deaf Golf Championships 2016 in Copenhagen. Rod and his team obtained fifth place.

The winner will need to be willing to share their story with others and happy to supply photographs and updates that may feature on the AB website, social media and other promotional materials. 

The sports scholarship is open to any AB cochlear implant recipient in the UK and Eire. If you are under the age of 18 years old, you must have consent from your parent/guardian.
