A Kansas University research unit has received a federal grant to help it enlarge the pool of skilled researchers with expertise in minority-group public-school students with disabilities.

Juniper Gardens Children's Project, based in Kansas City, Kan., a KU unit affiliated with the Institute for Life Span Studies on KU's Lawrence campus, will receive $599,488 from the U.S. Department of Education for the project, according to Charles Greenwood, Juniper Gardens director.

Under the program, 16 researchers who have finished their doctorates will, over four years, receive intensive training in research. Since 1983, Greenwood said, the children's project has trained 30 post-doctoral fellows under grants like this one.
