Application packages are now available for two NIDRR grant programs. Both are designated for institutions rather than individuals:
- Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training grants are five year capacity building grants. These projects train masters and doctoral candidates in conducting research in disability and rehabilitation. Application packages are available from ed.gov. There are currently 20 ARRTs around the US. Closing date for these applications is 2/28/12.
- Field Initiated Projects are three year research or development grants. NIDRR funds about 20 FIPs each year covering a wide range of topics. A description of the program and application process was just published in the Federal Register. For a look at the most recently funded FIPs, check out this list from the Program Database. The closing date for this is 3/5/12.
- Applications are also available for the Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) and Switzer Fellowships. The Switzer Fellowships are the only NIDRR grants awarded to individual researchers as opposed to companies, universities, hospitals, or other institutions.
Please note: NARIC has no involvement in the grant decision process. We do not have access to successful applications.
