From: Rochester Democrat and Chronicle - Rochester,NY,USA - Feb 5, 2005

HENRIETTA — Rochester Institute of Technology's National Technical Institute for the Deaf is taking applications now for its professional fellowship program.

The program is for deaf or hard-of-hearing college graduates with bachelor's degrees, and it offers a master's degree in a professional or technical field for free. Fellowship recipients get a full tuition waiver, free housing, 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 United States citizens and be accepted into a two- to three-year master's degree program at RIT to be eligible. An application and other required materials are due to the Professional Fellowship Program selection committee by Feb. 15.

For more information or application materials, contact NTID Office of Outreach and Transition Services at (585) 475-6433 (voice/TTY) or
