Grant to USA public, state-controlled and private institutions of higher education to provide rehabilitation research fellowships. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended for policy research training and experience in the areas of disability, independent living, and rehabilitation.

ARRT policy research fellowship grants are intended to improve outcomes of people with disabilities through advanced training in policy research in one or more of NIDILRR's three major domains of health and function, employment, and community living and participation, or in the area of technology for access and function, which supports positive outcomes for people with disabilities in these domains.

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 disability, independent living, and 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 that 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 clinical 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.

The ARRT project must design and provide a two-year training program to individuals to ensure that each trainee is qualified to conduct independent policy 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.

The closing date for applications is Jan 21, 2020 Electronically submitted applications must be submitted no later than 11:59 PM ET, on the listed application due date.

The Grants.gov (https://www.grants.gov) registration process can take several days. If your organization is not currently registered with https://www.grants.gov, please begin this process immediately. For assistance with https://www.grants.gov, please contact support@grants.gov or 800-518-4726 between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

At the https://www.grants.gov website, you will find information about submitting an application electronically through the site, including the hours of operation. ACL strongly recommends that you do not wait until the application due date to begin the application process because of the time involved to complete the registration process.

All applicants must have a DUNS number (http://fedgov.dnb.com/webform/) and be registered with the System for Award Management (SAM, https://sam.gov/SAM/) and maintain an active SAM registration until the application process is complete, and, should a grant be made, throughout the life of the award. Applicants should allot sufficient time prior to the application deadline to finalize a new, or renew an existing registration.

Once your SAM registration is active, allow 24 to 48 hours for the information to be available in Grants.gov before you can submit an application through Grants.gov. This action should allow you time to resolve any issues that may arise. Failure to comply with these requirements may result in your inability to submit your application or receive an award.
