Disability Research Consortium (DRC) fellowship programs

The Mathematica Center for Studying Disability Policy (CSDP) provides policymakers and program administrators with the evidence they need to make informed decisions that support effective disability policies and programs. Mathematica offers two DRC fellowship programs to graduate students. There is an open call for dissertation applications which are due for submission by Monday, June 25, 2018.

The summer fellowship program is an opportunity for students in master’s programs or early in doctoral programs (pre-dissertation phase) to spend a summer at Mathematica’s Washington, DC, office to learn more about conducting an independent research project related to disability policy.

The dissertation fellowship program offers financial support to students conducting their doctoral dissertation research on topics consistent with the DRC’s mission. In contrast with the summer fellows program, dissertation fellows remain at their home institution, with financial support provided to continue cutting-edge dissertation research.

Support the #DocsWithDisabilities and #NursesWithDisabilities project

The goal of the #DocsWithDisabilities/#NursesWithDisabilities Project is to share stories from the professional journeys of physicians and nurses with disabilities, in their own words. By featuring the real voices of health professionals with disabilities--including their struggles and successes--we hope to foster awareness, visibility, and community that brings together stakeholders from across medical education, clinical practice, and disability advocacy.

The project is volunteer led, by a tight-knit group of clinicians, health educators and administrators, and advocates, with and without disabilities, based at the University of Michigan Medical School's Department of Family Medicine.
