Doctoral applicants to Stanford University’s Graduate School of Education (GSE) for Fall 2021 admission may apply for a doctoral training project in Leadership for System-wide Inclusive Education (LSIE). LSIE prepares next generation researchers to take on the most pressing issues facing special education: (1) advancing equity for all; (2) improving learning outcomes for each and every learner; and (3) using cutting edge research techniques and practices to advance knowledge for practitioners, policy makers, and teacher educators.

Through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education, LSIE scholars will receive 5 years of funding and participate in joint learning with a doctoral cohort at the Department of Special Education at the University of Kansas. Students who receive funds under this grant will be responsible for working in the special education field after graduation as researchers, university faculty, school and district leaders, or on initiatives designed to improved outcomes for individuals with disabilities.

In 2019, the GSE introduced an ambitious Initiative on Learning Differences and the Future of Special Education, an interdisciplinary research, policy, and teacher preparation effort focused on improving the lives of the millions of children worldwide with diverse learning needs. LSIE is the first doctoral project introduced specifically under the Initiative.
