The Adapted Physical Education (APE) Program in the Department of Special Education
and the Speech-Language Pathology Program in the Department of Communication Sciences
and Disorders (CSD) have been awarded a five-year, $1 million U.S. Department of Education
grant to prepare graduate-level adapted physical educators and speech-language pathologists.
The grant, Project ISAACC (Interdisciplinary Scholarship for Advancing APE and CSD Collaboration), will prepare
highly qualified candidates to serve students with disabilities through an interdisciplinary
program of study in which they will learn alongside and from members in the other
program en route to their master's degrees.
Admitted scholars on this grant will receive $20,000 each year of the two-year APE
Program. Applicants will be considered for tuition waivers on a competitive basis.
