Center for Retirement Research Invites Applications for Disability, Retirement Research

The Center for Retirement Research at Boston College is inviting applications for its 2022 Steven H. Sandell Grant Program.

The program is funded by the U.S. Social Security Administration to provide opportunities from all academic disciplines to pursue cutting-edge projects on retirement or disability issues. Individuals from historically underserved or underrepresented communities are encouraged to apply. Up to three $45,000 grants will be awarded based upon the quality of the applicant’s proposal and the proposed budget. Applicants are required to complete the research outlined in the proposal within one year of the award, and grant recipients may be required to present their work to the Social Security Administration in Washington, D.C., or Baltimore.

Research focal areas include trends in disability; work in the modern economy; disabled beneficiaries and return-to-work; informing long-term projections and models; improving communication and outreach; economic security of SSA beneficiaries; disparities by race and ethnicity; and improving service delivery.

Applicants must be junior or non-tenured scholars (within seven years of receiving their PhD).

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Center for Retirement Research website.

Deadline: January 31, 2022
