Funding Opportunities

NEW Brain Aging Funding Opportunities


NEW Brain Aging Pilot Project Awards are intended to develop novel research infrastructure and projects that will advance the science of EWB and brain aging in specific areas requiring interdisciplinary partnerships or collaborations. They will serve two primary purposes. First, we seek to expand the quality, quantity, and translational impact of research into the mechanistic relationships between brain structure and function on one hand and EWB in older adults on the other. Second, we  intend to engage investigators new to the study of brain aging and EWB – both those who are early in their careers and have yet to define a topic area for their programs of study as well as investigators who have established research programs in other areas that they can productively extend to include NEW Brain Aging topics.

NEW Brain Aging Travel Fellowships: Accepting Applications!

NEW Brain Aging is pleased to offer travel fellowships for early-career investigators to attend scientific meetings and establish relationships with senior scientists involved in our center.

2023 Fellowship Program:

NEW Brain Aging will be providing funding to students and early-career investigators to attend the Society for Neuroscience's annual conference: Neuroscience 2023. Potential fellows should be interested in aging and/or emotional wellbeing and whose work is in human and/or animal models. In addition to receiving funding, fellows will have the opportunity to meet with and learn from established investigators in the field.
