With the goal to increase opportunities in science for disabled students, the Foundation for Science and Disability created the Science Student Grant Fund. Awards of $1000 each are made to support research projects of qualified university students in any field of Mathematics, Science, Medicine, Technology, or Engineering.
It is open to students with disabilities entering or currently enrolled in graduate studies in science.
