These awards help graduate students, postdocs, or early career researchers forge new mentorship relationships with more senior researchers in the field. Up to $3500 (to be split between advisors and trainees) will support the development of a mentor-mentee relationship that did not previously exist.
The mentor must be at a different university than the applicant, and the project must in some way inform our understanding of decision making across the life span and address Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) or health disparities.
Each proposal must include:
- a one paragraph description of the applicant’s research program and the type of mentoring the applicant is seeking and why.
- a brief description of how the proposed research project addresses Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias (ADRD) or health disparities.
- a brief description of the proposed mentor (i.e., who will provide mentorship in what way and why this individual).
- a budget.
- a mentor statement of commitment.
The applicant will submit the proposal, but both the applicant and the mentor will receive their own award. The budget should include the amount of time the applicant and mentor will spend together.
