The Hawaii DOE has provided a long-standing funding opportunity for those interested in becoming certified as special education teachers to teach in our public school system. Our MEd in Special Education does not lead to initial teacher licensure, therefore it is not eligible for the DOE stipend. However, on occasion the DOE will provide special funding opportunities based on need. For example, in 2019 the DOE funded 40 DOE employees in pursuing BCBA certification. If you would like to be sent notifications regarding new and upcoming funding opportunities, please be sure to complete the “Request More Info” form for this program.
