Center on Aging 2011 Pilot Grant Recipients

We are very pleased to announce the Center on Aging has approved 7 of the 15 pilot grant applications for funding. We were impressed with the quantity and quality of this year's submissions and the Steering Committee had a difficult time reaching its funding decisions. We are excited about these projects' promise and look forward to the recipients' participation in the Center's activities this year. Details about the recipients and their projects are now posted on the Pilot Grant Awardees page.

About our Logo

tree center 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.
