Funding Opportunity for Graduate Student Research Projects

The Social Security Administration (SSA) is granting graduate students $10,000 stipends to research work, rehabilitation and disability issues through the ARDRAW (Analyzing Relationships Between Disability, Rehabilitation, and Work) Small Grant Program. The objective of the ARDRAW Small Grant Program 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.

Applicants must be masters, doctoral, or post-doctoral-level part-time or full-time graduate students pursuing studies in accredited programs at the time of the award (Fall semester of 2017). Selected students will receive a stipend of $10,000 for the one-year program. 

ARDRAW will be holding two informational conference calls on January 31,2017 at 3:30 pm (ET) and February 8, 2017 at 2:00 pm (ET). Interested students and faculty members are invited to attend. We will provide a brief introduction to the program, review the elements of a successful application and answer any questions.
