Congratulations to Dr. Claudia Pagliaro (SES) on receiving additional funding from Salus University and the national Leadership Consortium in Sensory Disabilities (NLCSD), providing fellowships to doctoral students.
NLCSD is a doctoral level professional preparation Cooperative Agreement funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs and is administered by Salus University. The consortium consists of 25 universities with doctoral programs that have an emphasis in one or more of the three sensory impairment areas: blind/visually impaired, deaf/hard of hearing, and deafblindness.
Fellowships including tuition and stipends are available to US citizens/permanent residents who must first be accepted into a doctoral program. Fellowships provide funding for tuition and a stipend for four years of doctoral study.
NLCSD Fellows participate together in a structured added-value enrichment program in addition to their individual Universities’ Doctoral Programs of study in Special Education. The added-value NLCSD Research Based Conceptual Model supplements the research curriculum provided at the NLCSD parent Universities. During the Fellows’ studies, there is an ongoing, on-line asynchronous, wiki based research forum which provides opportunities for Fellows to critically examine research issues in the field, engage in discussion with faculty and researchers across the country, and engage collaboratively in designing, implementing and disseminating research.
Doctoral students in Specialized Education Services with a specialization in deafness have been selected by NLCSD.
