Graduate Study/Clinical Practice Traineeships may be available for occupational and physical therapists enrolled in or admitted to degree programs in Movement Sciences and Education/Kinesiology. They are offered in collaboration with several clinical agencies located in the metropolitan New York area that provide services to diverse groups including pediatric, adult and geriatric clients.
Depending on the number of hours, these traineeships typically carry an award of $30,000-$35,000 in stipend and tuition benefits. The instructional staff in Movement Sciences provides clinical supervision. A case study approach is used to directly bridge between substantive study and clinical practice. International students may qualify, contingent on obtaining appropriate clinical licensure.
In addition to scholarship awards, advanced students in the Ed.M., Ed.D. or Ph.D. programs may have an opportunity for funding by serving as research, laboratory or teaching assistants, or through appointment as instructors in basic courses. Work study positions are also available to US citizens and permanent residents who have applied for and received work study allocations.
