La Sala Doctoral Studies Endowed Fellowship Fund

Established in 2008 by Jess A. Cuculick, Assistant Professor in RIT’s Liberal Studies Department, supported by the La Sala Family Foundation, the La Sala Doctoral Studies Endowed Fellowship Fund will be used as an incentive for RIT/NTID deaf and hard-of-hearing faculty, staff, students, and alumni, as well as other deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals not affiliated with RIT/NTID, to pursue a doctoral degree from the Rochester Institute of Technology or any accredited university. The primary goal for this fellowship fund is to provide employment opportunities for deaf and hard-of-hearing people in higher education.
