Special Education Financial AidIn addition to College-wide financial aid, instructional, research, and administrative internships may be available through the Program in Special Education. The Department collaborates with schools and agencies in the metropolitan area to provide internships. When funds are available, federal traineeships and assistantships are awarded by the program to qualified students. In order to be eligible for a federal traineeship, an applicant must be a United States citizen and be fully admitted to a degree program.
Students are encouraged to apply for all types of financial aid for which they are eligible. Paid internships are available for some students who have been admitted to the Program in Applied Behavior Analysis.

Endowed fellowships and research assistantships are available to students who are preparing for careers in the education of people with intellectual disability/autism.
