$1.6 million Grant

RTND in Rochester is getting a check for $1.6 million for virtual academic community for college students who are deaf or hard of hearing and majoring in the STEM fields: science, technology, engineering or math. The five-year grant from the National Science Foundation’s Research in Disability Education program will go to the Center on Access Technology. The money will be used to create a model that will provide remote tutoring and mentoring support and captioning and interpreting access services.
