[ Email | Share ] CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Applications are being accepted for the 2013-2014 annual Paul D. Doolen Graduate Scholarship for the Study of Aging, sponsored by the Retirement Research Foundation.

Two graduate students, one from the biological-biomedical sciences and the other from the behavioral-social sciences, will each receive a $4,000 scholarship for the 2013-2014 academic year. The award will be given to students whose principal scholarly interest is in the field of aging. Students who hold an assistantship or fellowship will receive priority consideration for the award because the donor wishes this to be a “capstone” award.

Scholarship applications can be submitted online at www.usp.uillinois.edu/doolen. The deadline for submission is Feb. 11.

The Retirement Research Foundation uses the award to stimulate and support interest in the biological or sociological aspects of aging or treatment of diseases of the elderly. Last year’s applicants came from diverse curricula, including community health-gerontology, disability studies, kinesiology and pharmaceutics.

The current holders of the Doolen scholarships are students from the Champaign-Urbana campus:  Stephen Martin, a doctoral student in kinesiology and community health, and Brennan Payne, a doctoral student in educational psychology.
