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 2016, Heather Page, a PhD. student in oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, Scripps Institution of Oceanography was awarded a $1000 grant for work on for the project “Effect of ocean acidification on coral-algal competition and influence of reef benthic communities on seawater carbonate chemistry.
