Extract: EducationFellows selected for doctoral study programThe newly formed National Center for Leadership in Visual Impairment (NCLVI) at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry has awarded its first fellowships to 14 doctoral students who are committed to the education of children who are visually impaired. Headed by codirectors Kathleen Huebner and Diane Wormsley and funded by a $6.3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs, the NCLVI aims to increase the number of educators in the field of visual impairment who will assume leadership positions in higher education, research, public policy, curriculum development, and administration at the national, state, and local levels. 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 doctorates at any of the universities that are members of the NCLVI University Consortium.
