What's New?

The Student Award Program of FSD helps to increase opportunities in science, engineering, mathematics, technology, and pre‑medical/dental areas for graduate or professional students with disabilities.  FSD has established a Science Graduate Student Grant Fund, which is available to fourth year undergraduates (who are disabled and have been accepted to a graduate or professional school in the sciences) and graduate science students who have a disability.  Awards of $1000 each are made to support research projects of qualified university students in any field of Mathematics, Science, Medicine, Technology, or Engineering.


In 2017, Rachel Wiley, a PhD. student in the Institute of Molecular Medicine at the University of North Texas Health Sciences Center, Ft. Worth, TX, was awarded a $1000 grant for work on the project “Typing highly degraded DNA using circularized molecules and target enrichment.”
