Syracuse University’s School of Education has been awarded a $750,000 federal grant from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR). The grant, written by James Bellini, associate professor of counseling and human services, and Steven Taylor, professor of cultural foundations of education and director of the Center on Human Policy, provides $150,000 per year for five years in support of advanced rehabilitation research training for post-doctoral fellows.
The project will integrate rehabilitation research with disability studies and policy research, focusing on participation of people with disabilities in their communities. Over the course of the five years, the project will train three one-year fellows and two two-year fellows. Bellini is the project’s principal investigator. He and Taylor will serve as co-directors of training.
The grant and fellows will be associated with the University’s Center on Human Policy.
