Funding for Doctoral Studies in Autism and Severe Intellectual Disabilities: Vanderbilt

Funding for Doctoral Studies in Autism and Severe Intellectual Disabilities

The Department of Special Education at Vanderbilt University announces funding for doctoral students wanting to focus on students with severe intellectual disability, autism, and multiple disabilities. Our leadership training grant provides full tuition, generous monthly stipends, health insurance, professional travel, and much more. Our goal is to increase the number of well-qualified higher education faculty who have the skills and knowledge to improve research, teacher training, and educational outcomes for high-need students identified with severe disabilities or autism in grades K -12, including secondary transition. Our doctoral students receive exceptional training, strong mentorship, and unique research opportunities. Graduates of our doctoral program have obtained faculty positions at leading universities and colleges across the country and are making a real difference in the field. Early application is strongly encouraged. For more information, contact Erik Carter at Learn more about the program and our application process at
