The Hammill Institute on Disabilities may from time to time award a Hammill Institute on Disabilities Doctoral Fellowship, an activity that furthers the Institute’s charitable mission. The purpose of the Fellowship is to provide financial assistance to students enrolled in a doctoral program, either full or part time. Faculty members identified by the Institute Board are invited to nominate students for consideration and agree to monitor those students who are selected to receive Fellowships.
To be eligible for a Fellowship, a student must meet all of the following criteria.
- Be formally accepted into a doctoral program,
- require financial assistance to complete the degree,
- be a U.S. citizen, and
- be in a program of study benefiting the field of special education, including, but not limited to, teacher preparation, leadership development, or educational psychology.
