Data Training Workshop Tuition Awards for Early Career Investigators
The Coordinating Center is offering awards that cover the tuition cost for data training workshops for data resources of high value in population aging research. An important goal of the Centers on the Demography and Economics of Aging and Centers on the Demography and Economics of Alzheimer’s Disease/Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (AD/ADRD) is to attract and develop new scholars. Learning about new data resources can be an important point of entrance into aging research or can greatly enhance opportunities for early career aging researchers. Awards will cover the cost of tuition for the workshop. If interested, please send a statement of interest in either one or both of the training opportunities listed below (limit 200 words) and a current C.V. to Amanda Sonnega (firstname.lastname@example.org). Priority will be given to early career scholars (doctoral students, post-docs, and those within 6 years of terminal graduate work) and those interested in building a career in population aging research. Please include Data Training Tuition Award in the subject line.

Cross-Center Administrative Supplement Program
NIA administrative supplements provide additional funds to an active grant to support research in the field of aging. The goal of the program is to increase the number of junior scholars making successful applications for supplement funding. The Coordinating Center facilitates this cross-Center collaboration to support post doctoral and early career opportunities in aging research.
