New Funding Opportunity for Switzer Research Fellowships Program

New funding opportunities from ACL's National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) have been announced for the Switzer Research Fellowships Program.

Switzer Research Fellowships Program

The purpose of this program is to build research capacity by providing support to highly-qualified individuals, including those who have disabilities, to conduct research on the rehabilitation of individuals with disabilities. Fellows must conduct original research in an area authorized by section 204 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. This may include research, demonstration projects, training, and related activities, the purposes of which are to develop methods, procedures, and rehabilitation technology that maximize the full inclusion and integration into society, employment, independent living, family support, and economic and social self-sufficiency of individuals with disabilities.

NIDILRR plans to make six fellowship awards under this opportunity. Fellowship awards will have one 12-month project period.
