The Social Security Administration (SSA) is granting graduate students $10,000 stipends to research work, rehabilitation and disability issues through the Analyzing Relationships between Disability, Rehabilitation and Work (ARDRAW) Small Grant Program. According to the website, “the objective of ARDRAW is to foster new analysis of work, rehabilitation, and disability issues, which may develop innovative and fresh perspectives on disability by providing research stipends to a broad spectrum of graduate students.” The deadline for applications is March 1, 2018.
To be eligible, applicants must be masters, doctoral, or post-doctoral-level part-time or full-time graduate students in fall 2018. Selected students will receive a stipend of $10,000 for the one-year program.
The granting agency is planning to have two informational conference calls on January 31, 2018 at 3:30 p.m. and February 8, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. Interested students and faculty mentors are invited to attend. Any students interested in applying and faculty mentors are invited to attend the call, which will provide a brief introduction to the program, review the elements of a successful application and answer any questions. To attend, register for the January or February conference call. If you have any questions, contact the granting agency at firstname.lastname@example.org.
