PRIDE Early Intervention Program

The PRIDE program (Preparing Researchers in Early Intervention for Children with Disabilities from Multicultural Environments) is a training grant from the US Office of Special Education Programs for doctoral students who are interested in working with children from multi-cultural backgrounds. Students will receive specialized training, tuition, a stipend, health benefits, and expenses for attending conferences. Importantly, students will create a cohort of like-minded scientists meant to support them throughout the program, and into their professional careers. We are partnering with ASU, so cohort members will also receive training from experts there. Click the link above, or contact Mary Alt (malt@email.arizona.edu) for more information.

The Department of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences is committed to creating and maintaining an environment free of discrimination -- in the classroom, the clinical setting, and the workplace.  The University of Arizona Office of Institutional Equity provides education and support for these efforts.

The University of Arizona is an equal opportunity, affirmative action institution. The University prohibits discrimination in its programs and activities on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or genetic information and is committed to maintaining an environment free from sexual harassment and retaliation.

We respectfully acknowledge the University of Arizona is on the land and territories of Indigenous peoples. Today, Arizona is home to 22 federally recognized tribes, with Tucson being home to the O’odham and the Yaqui. Committed to diversity and inclusion, the University strives to build sustainable relationships with sovereign Native Nations and Indigenous communities through education offerings, partnerships, and community service.
