Call for Applications (LOI due 2/21/2020)
The Longer Life Foundation’s mission is to fund and support the study of factors that either predict the mortality and morbidity of selected populations or influence improvements in longevity, health, and wellness.
These grants are specifically for either junior investigators who are interested in longevity-related research and have yet to obtain independent funding, or for senior investigators who are developing a new direction in research on determinants of health and longevity. These awards provide up to $50,000 direct costs per year for up to 2 years to support these missions. Further, hands-on mentorship to assist scientific development is provided to junior faculty who are beginning their research careers. These grants have proven highly effective at generating pilot data for junior investigators and in allowing them to successfully compete for funding from national agencies.
Applications are encouraged from all divisions and the projects funded are often quite diverse in nature.
Letters of Intent are due on February 21, 2020. Please submit via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
