From The Foundation Center...

Deadline: September 30, 2009

Borchard Foundation Center on Law & Aging Invites Proposals for Academic Research Grant Program

The Borchard Foundation Center on Law & Aging supports research and scholarship toward the development of new or improved public policies, laws, and programs that will enhance quality of life for the elderly (including those who are poor or otherwise isolated by lack of education, language, culture, disability, or other barriers).

The center annually awards up to four grants of $20,000 each for individual or collaborative research projects that analyze and recommend changes in one or more existing public policies, laws, or programs relating to the elderly, or that anticipate the need for and recommend new approaches to elder issues necessitated by changes in demographics, advances in science and technology, changes in health care, or other developments.

The research grant program is open to all interested and qualified legal, health sciences, social sciences, and gerontology scholars and professionals. Organizations, whether profit or nonprofit, are not eligible to apply, although they may administer the grant. However, two or more individuals in the same institution or different institutions may submit a collaborative proposal.

Visit the Borchard Foundation Center Web site for the complete Request for Proposals.
