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

Two $4,000 scholarships will be awarded for the 2014-2015 academic year to graduate students at the University of Illinois whose principal scholarly interests lie in the field of aging – the biological or sociological aspects of aging or the treatment of the diseases of the elderly.

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. One student will be chosen from the biological-biomedical sciences and the other from the behavioral-social sciences.

The current holders of the Doolen scholarships are Erin Olson, a doctoral candidate in kinesiology and behavioral health on the Urbana-Champaign campus, and Jessica Wilson, an M.D./Ph.D. student in pharmacology on the Chicago campus.

Paper applications will not be distributed. Applications must be submitted online. The deadline for application is Feb. 10.

For more information, call 217-333-2030.
