One of the most popular grant programs supported by the American Academy of Audiology Foundation is the Humanitarian, Education, and Awareness Resources (HEAR) Chapter Grants, underwritten generously by Starkey Hearing Technologies. Offered twice per year to Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) chapters, these grants help fund the development of a new chapter project or the refinement of an existing project that is either humanitarian or educational in nature, or related to the awareness of audiology. SAA chapters must demonstrate a plan to raise money for a portion of the project funding.

Australia is the sixth largest country in the world by land mass, but is the 53rd largest by population. The majority of Australians reside in the coastal borders of the country, leaving the midland or “outback” with far fewer. Australia’s population contains a large number of settlers from various countries as well as the first-nations peoples, i.e., Aboriginal Australians and Torres Strait Islanders, who arrived at the mainland and islands more than 50,000 years ago. The first-nations population take great pride in their unique and vibrant culture.
