Scholarship Program


The Graduate Scholarship Program was created to address the staffing needs in critical shortage areas and to improve the delivery of service to New York City Public School students. This program prepares participants to serve in the areas of Bilingual Special Education, Monolingual and Bilingual Speech Language Pathology, Monolingual and Bilingual 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.  Currently we are accepting applications for the Fall 2014 semester.   To apply click here.
