Master's/Licensure Student Funding

Available Funding by Specialization Area

  • American Indian/Alaskan Native (Sapsikwala Project)
  • Secondary Special Education and Transition (Project HI-TEKS: Highly-Qualified Interventionists with Transition Evidence-Based Knowledge and Skills)
    The University of Oregon received a U.S. Department of Education grant (#H325K150204) to support tuition to prepare a limited number of students who have an interest in teaching secondary (middle/high school) students with intensive support needs.  This two-year licensure and endorsement program prepares pre-service or in-service teachers with a concentration in secondary transition to work with secondary students with intensive support needs.  Graduates of the program will be prepared to apply for an initial special education teaching license and endorsement across multiple levels making this a highly flexible option.
