Graeme Clark Scholarship

The Cochlear Graeme Clark Scholarship is a unique award open to Nucleus Cochlear Implant recipients around the world. Awarded by Cochlear, this scholarship has been set up to help individuals further themselves by undertaking university studies.

The Work of Graeme Clark

Professor Graeme Clark is the foundation Professor of the Department of Otolaryngology at the University of Melbourne. The pioneering work of his University Department led to the first research implant "bionic ear" being "switched on" in 1978 and the first Nucleus® Implant in 1982. Professor Clark's lifelong commitment to finding a solution for the hearing impaired has resulted in a revolution not only for those afflicted but also their family and friends.
