Recruiting Speech Language Pathology Scholarship Candidates

The Oregon Department of Education is recruiting Speech Language Pathology scholarship candidates from districts and ESDs. Scholarship recipients will enroll in the Oregon cohort of the Speech Language Pathology Masters degree program through Nova Southeastern University (NSEU).

Through funding from the 2007 Oregon Legislature, more than one hundred Oregon educators have been awarded scholarships for further education in Speech Language Pathology (SLP), a field identified with a severe shortage of professionals. These one hundred speech language pathologists and speech language pathology assistants are currently working in Oregon school districts and, at the same time, are in professional development programs which result in professional certification. Districts/ESDs from across the state are involved with the SLP and SLPA cohort programs, and many of the districts are located in the rural areas of the state.

ODE plans to begin the next Oregon SLP cohort in July 2014 and invites your district or ESD to apply. The application deadline is March 1, 2013. For additional information, please see http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?=3654. If you have questions, please contact Catherine Heaton at catherine.heaton@state.or.us eMail or call 503-947-5714.
