A limited number of training Fellowships will be available as of Fall
2006 semester for students taking coursework in Assistive Technology
at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Students may be enrolled
in either the UIC Department of Disability and Human Development
(seeking a masters degree within the DHD Rehabilitation Technology
track) or the UIC Department of Bioengineering (seeking a masters
degree within the BioE Rehabilitation Engineering concentration).

Students supported as Fellows receive a monthly stipend, and full
coverage of all tuition and fees. Coursework is usually completed
over a period of two full academic years, including Summer semesters.

The training is comprised of 7 full-semester courses on Assistive Technology:

Introduction to Assistive Technology (DHD 440)

Seating and Wheeled Mobility (DHD 552)

Augmentative Communication Assessment (DHD 554)

Computers, Communication, and Controls (DHD 551)

Adaptive Equipment Design and Fabrication (DHD 441)

Assistive Technology for Literacy, Learning, & Participation
in Pre-K through High School (DHD 444)

Research Methodology and Outcomes Measures
in Rehabilitation Technology (DHD 565)

Students also complete other course requirements specific to their
academic department (DHD or BioE).

The UIC Project TechTeam Fellowships are made possible through the
U.S. Department of Education - Rehabilitation Services
Administration, under its Long Term Training Program in
Rehabilitation Technology (H129E030004).

Application deadlines for Fall 2006 admissions are:
March 15, 2006 for BioE.
May 15, 2006 for DHD
