2022 Sandell Grant Program Now Accepting Submissions

Issued by Center for Retirement Research at Boston College

Nov. 24, 2021

The Center for Retirement Research sponsors the annual Steven H. Sandell Grant Program for scholars in the field of retirement or disability research and policy.  The program is funded by the U.S. Social Security Administration to provide opportunities for junior or non-tenured scholars (within seven years of receiving their Ph.D.) from all academic disciplines to pursue cutting-edge projects on retirement or disability issues.  Individuals from historically underserved or underrepresented communities are encouraged to apply.

Research focal areas include:

  • Trends in disability;
  • Work in the modern economy;
  • Disabled beneficiaries and return-to-work;
  • Informing long-term projections and models;
  • Improving communication and outreach;
  • Economic security of SSA beneficiaries;
  • Disparities by race and ethnicity; and
  • Improving service delivery.

Grant Awards

Up to three $45,000 grants are awarded based upon the quality of the applicant’s proposal and the proposed budget.  Applicants are required to complete the research outlined in the proposal within one year of the award.  Grant recipients may be required to present their work to the Social Security Administration in Washington, DC or Baltimore, MD.

“Virtual Office Hours” Service

The CRR offers the opportunity for potential applicants to ask questions about topics, datasets, and research design. The goal of this service is strengthen the quality of the applications and ensure that proposals closely align with the U.S. Social Security Administration’s research focal areas. Please contact CRR Economist Gal Wettstein during the month of November to take advantage of this service.
