NSF-funded research fellowship program to focus on producing experts to aid people with disabilities
Date:11/1/2011

Arizona State University (ASU) and California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) will help produce the next generation of experts trained in the skills and equipped with the tools to assist people with disabilities to improve the quality of their lives.

In early 2012 the universities will begin awarding up to 30 doctoral students fellowships to pursue studies and work experience in multiple fields from technology development to public policy making that contribute to efforts to assist individuals with disabilities.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently awarded a grant of approximately $3 million to support the students through its Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) program.

The fellowship program will bring together experts at ASU and CSULB who share interests in research, education and practice related to helping people with disabilities.

The combined team of more than 20 faculty and staff from the two universities (see list below) all of whom have experience working with a diverse range of students reflects diversity in culture, gender, disability, race and ethnicity. The team members will co-advise and mentor the doctoral student research fellows.

"Receiving IGERT grants for this kind of endeavor is a testament to the strengths of both ASU and CLUSB across a broad spectrum of disciplines," says Sethuraman "Panch" Panchanathan, an ASU professor of computer science and engineering who will lead the new IGERT-funded program. Forouzan Golshani, dean of the College of Engineering at CSULB, will be co-leader.

Panchanathan has been ASU's chief research officer since early 2010. On Nov. 1 he will move into the position of senior vice president of the university's Office of Knowledge Enterprise Development.

"The NSF's goal aligns with the goals of ASU's 'New American University' for advancement of interdisciplinary education and research," Panchanathan says. '/>"/>
