Funding Available for Holmes Doctoral Students in Early Childhood and Special Education
Last month, AACTE announced its new partnership with the Early Childhood Intervention Personnel Center on Equity (ECIPC-E), a national center federally funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs to assist states in building comprehensive systems of personnel development to improve outcomes for infants and young children with disabilities and their families.
As part of this partnership, AACTE will recruit, mentor, and support a cohort of 12 Holmes scholars in early childhood special education doctoral degree programs.
Specifically, Holmes scholars enrolled in E.D. and Ph.D. programs in special education, early childhood, and early childhood special education may apply. In addition to enhanced professional development, networking, and research support experiences, each scholar will receive $2,200 in financial support. To learn more about this opportunity, visit the ECIPC-E and Holmes Partnership webpage, which includes a link to FAQs and the application. The due date to apply is September 22.
If you have questions or want to learn more about the partnership or are interested in starting a Holmes Program, please contact Weadé James, vice president for organizational advancement, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
