2018 Application


2018 Application


Apply

To Apply For 2018:

 

Applications are open now. The deadline to submit an application is December 15, 2017. Decisions will be emailed in January 2018.

Apply here: https://duke.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9WGMikdjriKEVJH

There is no cost to attend the school; registration and lodging will be provided for all attendees. There are limited funds available to partially offset travel expenses available on a competitive basis (more information will be provided after you submit an application).

Priority will be given to individuals with research programs currently focused on improving health and well being in old age or who have plans to extend their work into this area. Individuals from backgrounds that are underrepresented in science are strongly encouraged to apply. If you are hesitant to apply because travel is complicated while you have an infant or small children, we will do everything we can to accommodate you. If there is interest, we will provide child care during the days and can provide space and time during the events for nursing and/or other childcare-related activities.
