The U.S. Department of Education (ED) is inviting applications for new awards for Fiscal Year 2004 under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), as part of IDEA’s Personnel Preparation to Improve Services and Results for Children with Disabilities. As a result of ASHA’s advocacy, ED has decided that Doctor of Audiology (AuD) degree programs are eligible for the personnel preparation in “low-incidence” competition (which includes hearing impairments) because the AuD is an entry-level degree.
The department listed four priorities in its announcement: 1) Preparation of Special Education, Related Services, and Early Intervention Personnel to Serve Infants, Toddlers, and Children with Low-Incidence Disabilities; 2) Preparation of Leadership Personnel; 3) Preparation of Personnel in Minority Institutions; and 4) Improving the Preparation of Personnel to Serve Children with High-Incidence Disabilities.
The application deadlines, which vary according to the four priorities, begin April 5. Visit the ED’s Web site at http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2004/pdf/04-4722.pdf [PDF] to download the long-awaited document. The announcement appeared in the March 3, 2004 issue of the Federal Register on page 10012.
The notice contains key dates, funding information for each competition, and directions on how to request an application package (paper or electronic). For grant-specific information, contact Sharon Moss by phone at 800-498-2071, ext. 4132, or by e-mail at smoss@asha.org. For questions on ED’s grant process, contact Catherine Clarke by phone at ext. 4159 or by e-mail at cclarke@asha.org.
