ROCHESTER, N.Y., Aug. 30—Deaf or hard-of-hearing people 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 while receiving a full tuition waiver, free housing in a single room in a residence hall, and a $15,000 annual stipend as compensation for a career-related, part-time job.

Deaf and hard-of-hearing applicants must be United States 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 Feb. 15, 2006, for admission the following fall.
