ROCHESTER, N.Y., July 15—Deaf or hard-of-hearing college graduates with a bachelor's degree are invited to apply to the Professional Fellowship Program at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID), a college of Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). This program offers a master's degree in a professional or technical field—for free. Fellowship recipients receive a full tuition waiver, free housing in a residence hall, and a $15,000 annual stipend as compensation for a career-related, part-time job.

Deaf and hard-of-hearing graduate students who apply must be U.S. citizens and be accepted into a two- to three-year master's degree program at RIT to be eligible for this fellowship. An application and other required materials are due to the Professional Fellowship Program selection committee by February 15, 2005, for admission the following fall.
