Call for Pilot Grant Applications for Utah older Americans Independence Center Submission

Deadline: January 17, 2012

The Utah Center on Aging is preparing for an NIA grant submission for a P30 Older Americans Independence Center (OAIC) for the next submission date in May 2012.  We are requesting two-page applications for pilot and exploratory studies to be considered for inclusion as part of the OAIC grant application. These applications must pertain to the proposed theme of the Utah OAIC – vascular aging and mobility – and involve the use of one or more of its resource cores. Application deadline is January 17, 2012. Please see the links below for details.

The CoA Pilot Grant program will be offered later in 2012. We expect to release the call for proposals by May 2012.

About our Logo

tree logo

The bristlecone pine tree (Pinus longaeva) - the earth’s oldest inhabitant with a life span of almost 5,000 years - is found only in Utah and five other western states. Its extraordinary longevity and ability to adapt and survive in extremely harsh environmental conditions above 10,000 feet embodies the investigative spirit and mission of the Utah Center on Aging.
