The National Institute on Aging Butler-Williams Scholars Program is currently accepting applications for the 2022 cohort.
The Butler-Williams (B-W) Scholars Program provides a powerful pathway for early-career scientists to expand their networks, advance grant writing skills, and gain a broader understanding of the science NIA conducts and supports. Early Career Scientists who are new to the field of aging may gain more knowledge about aging research as well as health disparities research in aging. In addition, the program includes scientific presentations and small group activities related to the life course of aging. Specifically, these include the biology of aging; genetics and Alzheimer’s disease; and health, behavior, and aging.
Researchers from diverse backgrounds, with disabilities and/or who have an interest in health disparities research are encouraged to apply.
Applications are due April 15, 2022. See the application details here.
