Student Opportunities

The CED provides a limited number of paid interdisciplinary traineeships for students at the graduate level. Some trainees receive a full or partial tuition waiver and/or stipend. These traineeships are supported by a variety of grants and special projects that allow students from specific academic disciplines such as psychology, social work, speech pathology, audiology, nutrition, occupational therapy, and physical therapy to observe or participate in clinical, non-clinical, and research experiences related to persons with disabilities.

The CED is also an approved site for internships for both undergraduate and graduate students in programs such as rehabilitation counseling, social work, occupational therapy, and nutrition. These are generally unpaid placements.
