Fellowships

Through fiscal year 2018, Mathematica offered fellowships to graduate students through the Disability Research Consortium, a cooperative agreement with the Social Security Administration. We have made all awards at this time. Information about the programs and recent fellows are below.

Beginning in fiscal year 2019, Mathematica has partnered with the Boston College Center for Retirement Research (CRR) on the Retirement and Disability Research Consortium (RDRC). CRR offers grants to young investigators and graduate students working on their dissertations. More information on these programs is available at http://crr.bc.edu/about-us/grant-programs/.

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.
