Grant Applications

The Oticon Foundation grants are allocated annually to New Zealand projects that increase awareness and knowledge about hearing loss. Each year a range of projects receive funding from The Oticon Foundation in New Zealand. These projects typically range from specialist training, research, services for hearing impaired people, and visits from overseas experts.
