CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Applications are available for the 15th annual Paul D. Doolen Graduate Scholarship for the Study of Aging, sponsored by the Retirement Research Foundation.

Two scholarships worth up to $3,500 each will be awarded for the 2001-2002 academic year to graduate students at the University of Illinois whose principal scholarly interests lie in the field of aging. The students must be in their second year of graduate work or beyond when the scholarships are held. Priority will be given to candidates who hold an assistantship or fellowship.

The purpose of the Doolen scholarships is to stimulate and support interest in the study of aging.

The current holders of the Doolen scholarships are Jonathan Godbout, a doctoral candidate in animal sciences on the Urbana-Champaign campus, and Janice Warren, a doctoral student in nursing research at the Chicago campus.

The deadline for applications is Feb. 5, 2001. Applications can be obtained from the University Office for Academic Policy Analysis, 807 S. Wright St., Suite 370, Champaign, IL 61820-6219. For more information, call (217) 333-2030.
