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.
The primary objective of the scholarship program is to provide full tuition payments to eligible students enabling them to obtain New York State certification and to seek a rewarding career in education. Successful program candidates are required to provide service in a high-need New York City Public Schools upon completion of the program. Two (2) years of service is required for every year the scholarship s awarded.
