The Office of Gerontology and Aging Studies invites proposals from the UI community to support aging-related research projects. Proposals can be from any unit and discipline as long as the focus is on gerontology and aging studies. Grants of up to $500 are available beginning May 8. Applicants should send a two-page description of their project, including project aims, related literature, type of methodology, overall relevance and dissemination plans. The grants may be used as seed money to develop more in- depth proposals or to carry out or complete projects. They may not be used to defray costs of travel to conferences for faculty, to defray faculty salary or stipends, or to purchase research-related equipment. The projects must be completed in one year while in residence at the UI. All campus faculty and students are eligible; however, student applicants are required to identify a faculty sponsor. A one-page vita should be included by the applicant or sponsoring faculty. Applications should be sent to Emily Stern, Office of Gerontology and Aging Studies, 150 Children's Research Center, MC-672.
