Two New Fellowships for Graduate Students Studying Disability Policy

The summer fellowship program is an opportunity for students in master’s programs or early in doctoral programs to spend the summer of 2018 at Mathematica’s Washington, DC office to learn more about conducting an independent research project related to disability policy. 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. Dissertation fellows will remain at their home institution during the fellowship. More information can be found at the Mathematica Center website.
