Extract: EducationFellowships for doctoral studyThe Pennsylvania College of Optometry recently announced the establishment of its National Center for Leadership in Visual Impairment (NCLVI), funded by the U.S. Office of Education's Office of Special Education Programs. NCLVI will provide a unique doctoral study experience for 25 qualified individuals committed to the education of children who are blind or visually impaired. Full tuition and a minimum of $20,000 annual living stipend will be provided to NCLVI fellows for up to four years of full-time study while they earn their doctorate at any one of the 14 universities that are members of the NCLVI University Consortium. Potential applicants must be U.S. citizens and already accepted into a doctoral program in special education at one of the NCLVI Consortium universities. Two national cohorts of students will be selected through a rigorous application procedure, the first to begin in the fall of 2005 and the second to begin in the fall of 2006. The NCLVI fellows will participate together in a structured enrichment program in addition to their university Doctoral Program.
