Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA institution of higher education for programs that train researchers in eligible disciplines. Funding is intended to support projects that offer PhDs and other qualified individuals high-level experience and training. The purpose of the program is to improve their ability to conduct quality multidisciplinary rehabilitation and disability research that improves outcomes for individuals with disabilities.

The Administrator of the Administration for Community Living establishes a priority for the Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training (ARRT) program. Under this priority, ARRT projects must provide advanced research training to eligible individuals to enhance their capacity to conduct high-quality multidisciplinary rehabilitation and disability research to improve outcomes for individuals with disabilities in NIDILRR's major outcome domain of health and function.

The purpose of the Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training (ARRT) Projects program is to provide advanced research training and experience to individuals with doctorates, or similar advanced degrees, who have clinical or other relevant experience. ARRT projects train rehabilitation researchers, including researchers with disabilities, with particular attention to research areas that support the implementation and objectives of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (Act), and improve the effectiveness of services authorized under the Act.

ARRT projects must: 

  1. Recruit and select candidates for advanced research training; 
  2. Provide a training program that includes didactic and classroom instruction, is multidisciplinary, and emphasizes scientific methodology, and may involve collaboration among institutions; 
  3. Provide research experience, laboratory experience, or its equivalent, in a community-based research setting, and a practicum that involves each individual in research and in practical activities with organizations representing individuals with disabilities; 
  4. Provide academic mentorship or guidance and opportunities for scientific collaboration with qualified researchers at the host university and other appropriate institutions; and 
  5. Provide opportunities for participation in the development of professional presentations and publications and for attendance at professional conferences and meetings, as appropriate for the individual’s field of study and level of experience.

ARRT projects must provide training to individuals for at least one academic year, unless a longer training period is necessary to ensure that each trainee is qualified to conduct independent research upon completion of the course of training, and must require trainees to devote at least 80 percent of their time to the activities of the training program during the training period.
