Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Massachusetts IHEs, school districts, and special education school programs for collaborative initiatives to increase the number of teachers using American Sign Language (ASL) in their classrooms. The purpose of this program is to ensure that teachers have the tools they need to instruct deaf and hard-of-hearing students.

The priorities of this project build upon and enhance a collaborative, sustainable model for growing the field of educators in Massachusetts who are licensed to teach students who are deaf or hard-of-hearing using American Sign Language/Total Communication.

Priorities include development of:

1. A collaborative pre-service model that will result in teacher candidates meeting the requirements for Initial License as a Teacher of the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing: American Sign Language/Total Communication - 603 CMR 7.06(27);

2. A collaborative in-service model that will result in educators in Massachusetts having a greater awareness of instructing and accommodating students who are deaf or hard-of-hearing and who communicate using American Sign Language in their classrooms, and/or meeting the requirements for Professional License as a Teacher of the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing: ASL/Total Communication; and

3. A varied and multi-faceted model of course delivery - including distance-learning, satellite programming, and affordable tuition - that will promote enrollment through wide accessibility.

Funds may be used for stipends, salaries, advertising costs, software, and in-direct costs of no more than 9% of the grant award.
