Employer Funded Masters


Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I was just wondering if anyone here as received funding from an employer to get a Masters in SLP? 

I know its common in Education, ABA, MBA programs... but haven't really heard of anyone doing this for SLP? Just wondering if anyone has done this ?

Yesterday, I interviewd for an ABA company, Verbal Behavior Associates, that emphasizes in behavior and Language Development. They have many SLP's in their company and are looking to hire more. Due to my education in Speech-Language Pathology, they informed me that they would actually help fund my tuition for a Master's program in my field. This was definitely shocking and amazing to learn. There are some twists into the agreement as in: I'd have to do online school because I need to work minimum 30 hours a week my first year of grad school, and my second year is a bit more flexible because of practicum hours.
