Master's Grant in Adapted Physical Education

Interdisciplinary preparation in Adapted Physical Education and Special Education

The School of Biological and Population Health Sciences has received funds to support full-time and part-time master's degree students in the area of adapted physical education. This grant is consistent with the emphasis on appropriate physical education for students with disabilities as mandated in the IDEA 2004 amendment (PL 108-446). Those who complete the degree will also meet all requirements for the Oregon TSPC Add-on Endorsement in Adapted Physical Education. This grant is available from 2019-2023

The educational curriculum is a theoretically based and interdisciplinary. Field-based teaching experiences include teaching children with disabilities in all school levels, including community-based physical activity programs and transition programs.

This project is supported by a grant from the Office of Special Education Programs, U.S. Department of Education. Funding for tuition and/or fellowships are available on a competitive basis for qualified applicants. Applicants from under-represented minorities are encouraged to apply.
