ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - The National Technical Institute for the Deaf in Rochester is getting $1 million to develop a training program for scientists.

Rep. Louise Slaughter says the five-year federal award will be used to develop a program aimed at deaf and hard-of-hearing undergraduates. The goal is to increase the number of deaf and hard-of-hearing students who enter biomedical and behavioral science Ph.D. programs.

The National Technical Institute for the Deaf is one of the colleges of Rochester Institute of Technology. Institute officials called the program a “historic development” for deaf and hard-of-hearing students and for the college.
