NBER’s Fellowship Program in Disability Policy Research, supported by the Social Security Administration and NBER (
Applications from researchers who are just completing their PhDs, as well as from junior faculty members who may be able to combine this fellowship with an early career leave, are welcome. Fellows will be selected based on reviewers’ assessment of the relevance of their proposed research and potential to make an important contribution to our understanding of disability policy.
The fellowship offers a 12-month stipend of $75,000, reimbursement for health insurance, limited research expenses, and an office at the NBER’s Cambridge headquarters. The fellowship stipend provides federal funding for 100% effort during the year, and fellows are expected to spend the 2018-19 academic year at the NBER. A working paper on the proposed topic is due by September 2019.
Applicants must have completed their PhD before they begin the program and must be US Citizens or lawfully admitted for permanent residence. NBER strongly encourages applications from women, minorities, people with disabilities, and veterans.
