CHAMPAIGN, Ill. —
Applications are available for the 18th annual Paul D. Doolen Graduate
Scholarship for the Study of Aging, sponsored by the Retirement Research
Two graduate students, one from the biological-biomedical sciences and
the other from the behavioral-social sciences, will each receive up
to a $4,000 scholarship for the 2003-2004 academic year. The award will
be given to students whose principal scholarly interest is in the field
of aging. Students who hold an assistantship or fellowship will receive
priority consideration for the award.
The Retirement Research Foundation uses the award to stimulate and support
interest in the biological or sociological aspects of aging or treatment
diseases of the elderly. Last year’s applicants came from diverse
curricula such as community health-gerontology, disability studies,
kinesiology, nursing research and pharmaceutics.
The current holders of the Doolen scholarships are two students from
the Champaign-Urbana campus: Kirk Erickson, a doctoral student in biological
psychology, and Jason O’Connor, a doctoral student in animal sciences.
The deadline for applications is Feb. 2, 2004. Applications can be obtained
from University-wide Student Programs, 807 S. Wright St., Suite 370,
Champaign, IL 61820. For more information, call 217-333-1171.
