Center for Opportunities & Outcomes for People with Disabilities

Research Training > Fellowships/Research Assistantships

Students who have been admitted to the doctoral or masters degree programs in Special Education in the Department of Health and Behavior Studies at Teachers College are considered on a competitive basis for Research Fellowships at the Center for Opportunities and Outcomes for People with Disabilities.

Students who are selected, on the basis of their interests and achievements, as Center for Opportunities and Outcomes Fellows will be expected to devote a specified amount of time, ranging from a half day to two full days per week, to Center-related research activities. Activities will include orientation and research training, biweekly research colloquia with invited speakers, and regular meetings with Center Fellows and faculty members. Fellows can expect opportunities to develop a wide-range of research skills in the context of an active research community.
