Special education funding
All of our teacher preparation programs have financial support available to support your studies. For the 2014-15 academic year, we are seeking applications for all programs, with funding available in the following programs:
- Early childhood special education concentration of M.Ed. program (tuition and stipend)
- Severe disabilities concentration of M.Ed. program (tuition for those holding a provisional license)
- General education concentration of M.Ed. program (tuition and stipend for those accepted into the Richmond Teacher Residency cohort)
We also offer reduced tuition rates for the licensure-only Certifying Online Virginia Educators program, also known as COVE, which provides coursework needed to earn the Virginia special education general curriculum endorsement for those holding a conditional or provisional license in the area.
For Ph.D. candidates, graduate assistantships may also be available that provide a stipend, tuition support and an opportunity to work with our outstanding faculty. Please contact Dr. Kevin Sutherland, the concentration coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
