HCRI Scholarships

HCRI scholarships are designed to make effective stuttering therapy affordable to individuals who are experiencing financial hardship. Funding is made possible through the generosity of past program participants who want to give the gift of fluency to others because HCRI's therapy program has made such a remarkable difference in their lives.

Financial aid is awarded according to each person´s individual financial circumstances. Awards will be determined based on household income, number of dependents, and other financial circumstances.

Please note that there are limited funds available for scholarships. Therefore, we request that you make every effort to obtain funds from other sources prior to requesting aid from HCRI. State Vocational Rehabilitation agencies can be an excellent source for funding consideration. We are unable to provide financial assistance to individuals who qualify for aid from other sources such as vocational rehabilitation agencies, insurance companies or employee benefit programs. We may request written proof that assistance was sought from, but denied by, other funding sources prior to our granting financial aid.

How to Request a Scholarship

To apply for a scholarship, you must first submit an application to attend one of HCRI's 17 annual stuttering therapy programs.

Once you submit your therapy program application, we will contact you about your participation. At that time, you may request scholarship information and we will forward a scholarship application to you.
Complete and return the scholarship application to HCRI. We will review your information and advise you of your qualification for an award.

If you have questions about HCRI's scholarship program or need information on available session dates, therapy fees, and insurance requirements, call us at 540-265-5650 (or) toll free 855-236-7032 anytime Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (EST).

The HCRI Difference

HCRI is recognized as a leader in stuttering therapy. We developed the first comprehensive behavioral stuttering treatment, as well as the first speech measurement and feedback system for therapy. We continually research and upgrade our treatment program, based on new discoveries and technology, to make fluency learning easier and more sustainable. As a result, you benefit by participating in one of the most advanced, results-based therapy programs available.

For 40 years, we’ve researched and treated stuttering, made presentations around the globe, trained therapists across the U.S., and partnered with national agencies on stuttering research. We’ve helped more than 6,100 people, representing all types and severities of stuttering. We have the experience and know how to help you on the path to fluency.

HCRI’s treatment is comprehensive, systematic, and quality-controlled. We test every detail of the therapy process, and have systems to ensure treatment reliability. This includes having HCRI clinicians participate in 500 extra hours of customized training. These stringent standards ensure you achieve the best possible therapy outcomes.

HCRI stuttering therapy has enhanced the lives of thousands of people who stutter. Research shows 90-93% of clients acquire fluent speech in 12 days and 70-75% retain fluency when evaluated one and again two years post therapy. You can expect similar results if you give 100% to the therapy process.

Our extensive post-therapy tools and support are unmatched. Examples include our computer-based FluencyNet system, monthly video tips, HCRI reunions, fluency practice groups, and a free iPhone app that serves as a clinician in your pocket. Of course, we are always available by phone, email and Skype to offer assistance. At HCRI, we are your partner in fluency for life.

Stuttering has enormous personal cost in the form of lost opportunities at work, school and socially. Therapy also comes at a price − but therapies are not created equally. The hourly cost of HCRI’s therapy program, which totals 100 hours over 12-days, is less than half the national average. Plus, HCRI provides a high probability of a positive, lasting outcome. All things considered, HCRI represents one of the best therapy values available – and financing is available.
