WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - The Department of Rehabilitation Counseling at Winston-Salem State University has received two grants from the U.S. Department of Education.

A statement from the school says the grants total more than $2 million.

The grants from the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services are designed to address the shortage in professionals in rehabilitation, as well as the specific shortage of rehabilitation counselors providing services for the deaf or hard of hearing.

The university received a grant of $1.25 million to enhance its online master’s level rehabilitation counseling training program.

A grant of slightly more than $1 million over five years will enhance the online master’s degree program with an emphasis on training rehabilitation counseling to assist individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing attain their employment goals.
