What is the Bridge Project?
Bridge project is a collaborative grant project between the Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) program in the Department of Special Education in the Michael D. Eisner College of Education and the Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) program housed within the Department of Psychology in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, through the Office of Special Education Programs (U.S. Department of Education). The Bridge scholars will receive interdisciplinary collaborative enriched coursework, specially designed seminars, and supervised fieldwork experiences. Graduates will be prepared to serve young children with disabilities eligible for Part C or Part B preschool services through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
Applicants interested in funding through the Bridge Project will complete an additional application to be considered for the Bridge funding. Two years of funding will be provided for scholars as stipends ($7,500/year), travel support for two conferences, and technology support. Scholars are expected to complete their degree program and the Bridge Project requirements within two years.
