WVU Five-Year Program / Special Education Dr. Gabriel A. Nardi
Student Professional Development Fund
This fund provides financial support to undergraduate teacher education students from the WVU College of Education and Human Services – including 5th year students in the WVU Five-Year Teacher Education Program. It provides funds to cover expenses related to registration, lodging and related travel for students who wish to attend professional conferences. Preference will be given to students attending conferences in special education.
Fullbright U.S. Student Program
The program provides grants for recent graduates and graduate students to spend one
year abroad doing research or participating in English Teaching Assistant Programs.
As the program’s website explains, “Fulbrighters will meet, work, live with and
learn from the people of the host country, sharing daily experiences. The program
facilitates cultural exchange through direct interaction on an individual basis
in the classroom, field, home, and in routine tasks, allowing the grantee to gain
an appreciation of others’ viewpoints and beliefs, the way they do things, and
the way they think. Through engagement in the community, the individual will interact
with their hosts on a one-to-one basis in an atmosphere of openness, academic integrity,
and intellectual freedom, thereby promoting mutual understanding.” ,
