Students engaged in graduate study and research in the Department of Special Education find that collaboration among faculty members and students is nurtured and rewarded. Our students’ contributions are recognized and valued. In many cases, this recognition comes in the form of financial awards that enable students to devote concentrated attention to their studies.

Grant-funded Program Opportunities

Our faculty have been awarded several grants that fund student research and scholarship. The funding may include a stipend, tuition, travel, or any number of expenses; many of these programs are fully funded. Here are our current research program opportunities:

Assistantships
Graduate student assistantships and accompanying tuition waivers provide graduate students with financial resources to help defray the expenses associated with completing their graduate degrees. For more information, please see the Graduate College website.

Graduate Traineeships

Traineeships are research fellowships that are awarded to provide educational training in particular disciplinary areas and provide a stipend for living expenses. For more information, please see the Graduate College website.
