National Bureau of Economic Research: Pre-Doctoral Fellowships in Disability Policy Research

Pre-Doctoral Fellowships in Disability Policy Research

To encourage research that will deepen our understanding of the health and economic implications of disability and disability policy, the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) Disability Research Center, with funding from the Social Security Administration as part of its Disability Research Consortium, is seeking applications from doctoral students in economics for one- or two-year fellowships.

NBER encourages applications from individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Each fellowship will provide a 12-month stipend of $22,476 and will cover the fellow’s tuition at his or her home institution, up to a limit of $12,000 plus health insurance, as well as limited funds for research expenses and travel.
