Ever Think About Earning a Doctorate?

The National Leadership Consortium in Sensory Disabilities (NLCSD), 
funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special 
Education Programs, is accepting applications to doctoral programs in 
the areas of blind/visually impaired, deaf/hard of hearing, and 
deafblindness. Full tuition and a minimum of $20,000 annual living 
stipend will be provided to NLCSD Fellows for up to four years of 
full-time on campus study while they earn their doctorates at one of 
the 25 Consortium Universities. Fellowships are available to US 
citizens/permanent residents who must first be accepted into a 
doctoral program. The cohort will begin Fall 2010.

The consortium members, and the doctoral programs they offer, are 
listed at 

Applications must be postmarked by March 26, 2010. Applications 
postmarked after that date will not be considered. Notifications will 
be made to applicants by May 3, 2010.

Please share this information with potential candidates, or consider 
applying yourself!

The NFB is deeply concerned that we have strong leaders in order to 
continue our work to improve the education of blind children and the 
programs to train teachers to work with those children.  We encourage 
those interested in providing leadership in this area to consider applying.
