The Association for Gerontology Education in Social Work (AGESW), along with support from the Gerontological Society of America (GSA) will provide support for a cohort of 10 social work doctoral students who have completed their first year of doctoral studies. The goal of this program is to provide students with support for their dissertation process and to prepare them for an academic career in gerontological social work research and education. Recipients will receive more than ten hours of programming delivered by nationally recognized faculty who are experts in the field of gerontological social work. The Program will be delivered at the 2016 Gerontological Society of America (GSA) conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. Awardees will be selected by the AGESW Pre-Dissertation Advisory Council.

By May 1, 2016, applications may be submitted as one PDF file via email to Joyce McDaniel at
