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 2018, Cynthia Bennett, a PhD. student in the Department of Human Centered
Design and Engineering at the University of Washington, Seattle, WA, was awarded a grant for “Accessible Design and Making for People with Vision Impairments.”
