This program prepares participants to serve in the areas of Bilingual Special Education, Monolingual and Bilingual Speech-Language Pathology, Blind and Visually Impaired, and Bilingual School Psychology. The scholarship program offers uncertified candidates a traditional path to certification by way of a Master's degree in a traditional teaching or clinical shortage area. Applications for the Fall 2021 semester will be available from January 4, 2021 through April 30, 2021
