Faculty Members Invited to Apply for Gerontology Institute Grants


Contributed by Paula Davis

The Ithaca College Gerontology Institute invites faculty members across the college to apply to its Faculty Grants Program, aimed at encouraging the integration of aging-related issues into the development of faculty teaching, outreach, and research activities. All IC faculty are eligible to apply and faculty with new projects are especially encouraged to participate.

Grants are limited to up to $1,000 for each academic year. The number of grants awarded each year will be determined by quality of submissions and budgets requested.

All proposals will be competitively peer-reviewed by ICGI staff and faculty. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis throughout the 2013 academic year until all funds are committed. To access the application, click here.

Grantees will be required to submit a brief (minimum 1-page) narrative report and financial report at the conclusion of the project and participate in an on-campus poster session with other grantees during an annual reception hosted by the ICGI.

Many types of activities can be supported with the funding and we are particularly interested in projects that include students and community partners. There is no formal deadline for inquiries about these opportunities, but funds are limited, so faculty are encouraged to contact Rhoda Meador, (rmeador@ithaca.edu), director of the Gerontology Institute, as soon as possible.
