We are pleased to announce that PACS has received a five-year grant for $1.1 million from the U.S. Department of Education. The major objective of this five-year project is to create a Pediatric Audiology Specialization within our existing Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) program, addressing a professional shortage and enhancing services for children who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. The grant, awarded through the Office of Special Education Programs, will provide significant tuition support to students in our Au.D. program, starting in 2014.
