Eligible Applicants: Only individuals are eligible to apply for Switzer Fellowship grants. Eligible individuals must: (1) Satisfy the requirements of 45 CFR part 75 and (2) have training and experience that indicate a potential for engaging in scientific research related to improving the outcomes of individuals with disabilities. The program provides two categories of research fellowships: Merit Fellowships and Distinguished Fellowships. (a) To be eligible for a Merit Fellowship, an individual must be in the earlier stages of his or her career in research and have either advanced professional training or experience in independent study in an area which is directly pertinent to disability and rehabilitation. (b) To be eligible for a Distinguished Fellowship, an individual must have seven or more years of research experience in subject areas, methods, or techniques relevant to research on rehabilitation, independent living and other experiences and outcomes of individuals with disabilities, and must have a doctorate, other terminal degree, or comparable academic qualifications. Note: Institutions are not eligible to be recipients of Switzer research fellowships. Applicants must submit an eligibility statement describing how they meet the requirements for one of the two eligibility classifications allowed under this program.
