Disability Research Mentorship Program for Black Graduate Students

Posted: 6/30/2020 (Funding)

The Disability Research Mentorship Program for Black Graduate Students will provide students with access to a large dataset to analyze, and will support and mentor the students as they navigate the research and peer-review publication process. By the end of this Mentorship Program, the aim is for students to have an accepted/in-press or under review peer-reviewed publication (sole or first author) which they can add to their CV. There will also be an opportunity for students to present their work publicly.

If interested in applying for this Disability Research Mentorship Program for Black Graduate Students, we ask that you complete the following application.

  • Applicants will be asked about their research interests as well as what they hope to use the CQL data to analyze.
  • Applications will be judged based on their proposed research project and its relevance to promoting the quality of life of people with disabilities.
  • Applicants must be a Black graduate student in the United States studying disability.
  • Graduate students are encouraged to apply even if they do not have a background in quantitative research or a history of peer-reviewed publications.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until this year’s mentorship student/s have been selected. We will begin reviewing applications at the end of July 2020.
