News: Mathematica Policy Research Fellowship Opportunities - Deadline: mid-February (exact date TBA)

January 6, 2017 - 9:15pm

Mathematica Policy Research has released a request for applications for two fellowship opportunities for graduate students conducting research related to disability policy. These opportunities are funded via the Social Security Administration’s Disability Research Consortium.


The summer fellowship program is an opportunity for students in Master’s programs or early in doctoral programs (pre-dissertation phase) to spend the summer of 2017 at Mathematica’s Washington, DC, office to learn more about conducting an independent research project related to disability policy. The last three years of this program have been highly successful, and we are looking forward to another fantastic experience for this year’s fellows.


The dissertation fellowship program will offer financial support via a $28,000 stipend to students conducting doctoral dissertation research on topics related to disability policy. This program is geared to graduate students working on their dissertations, and in contrast with the summer fellows program, dissertation fellows will remain at their home institution. 


More information may be found in the PDF documents below, as well as at Applications for each program are due in mid-February 2017, the exact date for each program is contained in its RFA.
