The Bresnahan-Halstead Center is committed to work for the advancement of knowledge and quality services for people with disabilities through research, professional development, partnership/technical assistance, and scholarships. As part of this mission, the Center is committed to providing travel support to faculty in the School of Special Education at the University of Northern Colorado or members of the Advisory Board for the Center. In addition, travel funds are available to doctoral students enrolled in the doctoral program in the School of Special Education at the University of Northern Colorado. However, these travel funds are limited and should be used as a supplemental source, rather than a primary source for funding professional travel.
Travel support was provided to three faculty members of the School of Special Education to present at the 2014 Council for Exceptional Children Convention (2 faculty members) and at the Executive Committee Board Meeting of the International Council for Education of Persons with Visual Impairment (ICEVI).
Guidelines and the application form for applying for these scholarships can be found on the Procedures and Forms page.
