The American Cochlear Implant Alliance (ACI Alliance) announced the student scholarship award recipients for CI2022 DC: Emerging Issues in Cochlear Implantation (CI), to be held in Washington, DC, May 18-21, 2022.

Conference scholarships were open to full-time students, fellows, and postdoctoral scholars who have a clinical or research interest in cochlear implants, and the scholarship includes registration to the meeting, a $120 stipend, and a student membership in ACI Alliance. Submissions were reviewed by a committee of professionals across the hearing health spectrum.

The 66 applicants who submitted a scholarship application spanned the range of clinicians and scientists that comprise the ACI Alliance community. The 22 applicants chosen for this prestigious award represent a diverse field of individuals from 19 different institutions of higher learning across the country enrolled in audiology programs, PhD programs in deaf education and linguistics, medical programs, and post-doctoral candidates.

CI2022 DC will address both pediatric and adult CI topics on emerging issues such as expansion of cochlear implantation; the latest from clinical trials and research; and rethinking (re)habilitation and education. There will also be keynote lectures, panel sessions, podium and poster sessions, which will allow attendees to pursue a wide array of cochlear implant and related content. Student participation in CI2022 is an important component in our efforts to increase clinical and research involvement in CI. ACI Alliance is confident this year’s student scholarship recipients will contribute importantly to our mission of expanding access to cochlear implants.

ACI Alliance is a not-for-profit membership organization created with the purpose of eliminating barriers to cochlear implantation by sponsoring research, driving heightened awareness, and advocating for improved access to cochlear implants for patients of all ages across the US.
