How do I make sure that I also apply for ASPIRE when I apply for Mason's doctoral program? More Less
Do two things. First, when you apply to Mason's PhD program, indicate interest in ASPIRE by noting ASPIRE within the essay, such as “I am interested in the ASPIRE program.” Most likely, other essay content overlaps with ASPIRE’s purpose for preparing future special educators for higher education positions. Second, contact one of the Co-PIs (via e-mail) to alert them that (a) you have submitted your doctoral application, (b) you desire to be interviewed by the ASPIRE PI team, and (c) you have read all the information about ASPIRE and agree to conditions thereof.
