NIA-specific Programs to Diversify the Research Workforce

Aging Research Dissertation Awards (R36)

As part of NIA's broader effort to increase the diversity of the research workforce on aging, the institute is offering dissertation support to eligible students. This dissertation research award announcement is intended to stimulate the participation of individuals from the following groups:

  1. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups
  2. Individuals with disabilities
  3. Individuals from socially, culturally, economically, or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds, which have inhibited their ability to pursue a career in health-related research
