Tuition Support for Low Incidence Areas
The MN Low Incidence Projects has funds available to partially support students pursuing special education licensure in Blind/Visually Impaired (BVI) or Physical/Health Disabilities (P/HD). These funds are made possible with a grant from the Minnesota Department of Education. The intent of this tuition support program is to increase the number of available teachers licensed in BVI and P/HD throughout our state. The expectation is that teachers who benefit from this tuition support would then pursue BVI or P/HD licensure upon completion of course requirements, and actively pursue and/or be available for employment in this capacity.
Additional information and current year applications for tuition support in the areas of Blind Visually Impaired (BVI) and Physical/Health Disabilities (P/HD) can be found below.
