Project Bridges is a federally-funded program through the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) at the US Department of Education. The University of Central Florida (UCF), College of Community Innovation and Education, is excited to announce that Project Bridges 2 is able to offer funding opportunities for a limited number of qualified applicants to earn their Collaborative Intervention Specialist Graduate Certificate and either a Masters in Education (M.Ed.) in Exceptional Student Education or an Educational Specialist (Ed.S.) in School Psychology.

Courses within the certificate program will be offered as a hybrid course delivery; therefore, face-to-face class meetings at the UCF Orlando campus will be required for each of the four Graduate Certificate courses. This unique program takes an interdisciplinary approach to preparing teacher leaders and school psychologists who work with students with significant and persistent needs. 

We ask that you complete an application for Project Bridges and email it to us for review and consideration. Qualified applicants will be contacted for an interview. If selected to participate in Project Bridges 2, you will be asked to apply to UCF and admission to the university is a requisite for beginning courses.

If you have any questions, please email us at We look forward to receiving your application.

**Please note, this funding opportunity comes with a service obligation. For each year of funding, in this case one year, it is required that 51% of your time or 51% of your caseload be spent working with students with disabilities for two years for every year of funding received.
