The purpose of the Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training (ARRT) Program is to provide advanced research training and experience to individuals with doctorates, or similar advanced degrees, who have clinical or other relevant experience. In partnership with ACRM, NIDILRR selects five ARRT Fellows to present research relevant to the ACRM mission and audience during the ACRM Annual Conference.
If you are interested in pursuing an ARRT fellowship you can find out which institutions are funded under the ARRT program and NIDILRR funding mechanism. To do this, query the program database of NIDILRR grants held at NARIC. At the bottom of this search page is an item named “Project Type”. The drop-down menu includes the ARRT program as an option. The search can be narrowed by changing the “Funding Status” item and/or entering a topical keyword. The search result will provide the grant abstract as well as contact information for the grantee/Project Director.
