Grants to USA institutions of higher education for advanced research training programs that improve multidisciplinary rehabilitation and disability research. Funding is intended for research training that will enhance outcomes for people with disabilities in the domain of community living and participation. The program is designed for individuals with doctorates, or similar advanced degrees, who have clinical or other relevant experience.

ARRT projects train rehabilitation researchers, including researchers with disabilities, with particular attention to research areas that support the implementation and objectives of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended (Act), and improve the effectiveness of services authorized under the Act. ARRT projects must

  1. Recruit and select candidates for advanced research training; 
  2. Provide a training program that includes didactic and classroom instruction, is multidisciplinary, and emphasizes scientific methodology, and may involve collaboration among institutions;
  3. Provide research experience, laboratory experience, or its equivalent, in a community-based research setting, and a practicum that involves each individual in research and in practical activities with organizations representing individuals with disabilities;
  4.  Provide academic mentorship or guidance and opportunities for scientific collaboration with qualified researchers at the host university and other appropriate institutions; and
  5.  Provide opportunities for participation in the development of professional presentations and publications and for attendance at professional conferences and meetings, as appropriate for the individual's field of study and level of experience.

ARRT projects must provide training to individuals for at least one academic year, unless a longer training period is necessary to ensure that each trainee is qualified to conduct independent research upon completion of the course of training, and must require trainees to devote at least 80 percent of their time to the activities of the training program during the training period.

Applicants should describe expected public benefits of training activities, especially benefits for individuals with disabilities, and propose training projects that are optimally designed to demonstrate outcomes that are consistent with the proposed goals. Applicants are encouraged to include information about how they will measure outcomes, including the indicators for determining that results have occurred. Applicants are also encouraged to provide clear and detailed justification for the proposed length of the training period (i.e. 12, 18, or 24 months).
