NEW STUDENT FUNDING AVAILABLE!
The Department of Special Education recently received two new fundings through the Office of Special Education Programs of the US Department of Education to support future teachers and leaders with interests in severe disabilities and secondary curriculum. These federal grants offer opportunities for interested individuals to pursue undergraduate and graduate studies at Illinois.
ACCESS (Innovative ACCESS to Curriculum for Students with Severe Disabilities) is focused on developing expertise in severe disabilities among preservice teachers who are pursuing initial teaching certification at the undergraduate level (http://education.illinois.edu/sped/projectaccess) or at the masters level (http://education.illinois.edu/sped/impact/accesson-campuslbsinew). In addition, the project offers a part-time masters degree program with advanced certification in severe disabilities for practicing teachers in the Champaign and Chicago areas (http://education.illinois.edu/online-offcampus/sped/m).
SCORE (Leadership in Secondary Curriculum and Research for Youth with Severe Disabilities) seeks individuals who wish to pursue a doctorate with emphasis on severe disabilities and secondary education curriculum (http://education.illinois.edu/sped/impact/SCORE1). This grant also offers 1-2 year postdoctoral fellowships (http://education.illinois.edu/Post-doctoral).
