Masters of Secondary Education for the Deaf

You can support any of the scholarships listed below via the Online Gift form. If you are interested in establishing a named scholarship fund in honor or memory of someone, please contact Bryan Hensel.

Established in 2015, the fund supports two students annually. The first student must be deaf or hard-of-hearing and enrolled full time in the Master of Science in Secondary Education program. The second student must be deaf or hard-of-hearing and enrolled full time in the RIT College of Liberal Arts. The fund is named for Michael Lawson, a 2006 RIT/NTID graduate who led the RIT men’s soccer team from 2002-2006 and who earned top academic honors.

Established in 2003, this fund provides academic scholarships to deaf and hard-of-hearing women enrolled in the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, a college of Rochester Institute of Technology. Recipients must be enrolled in the Master of Science in Secondary Education program at NTID. They must be in good academic and financial standing, have at least a 3,0 grade point average and deomonstrate financial need.
