(Please note that the AGESW Town Hall will be held through Boston College's Zoom account, which has additional security precautions. In order to log in virtually, you must have a Zoom account or log in via your Google or Facebook credentials. Your Zoom account can be either a personal or university account. Once you log in, you will briefly be placed in a "waiting room" and the host will let you in. Alternatively, you can call in using the above phone number.) Previously, we held our first Town Hall on May 8, 2020.
Pre-Dissertation Initiative announcement
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting uncertainty regarding travel and institutional financial support, the Association for Gerontology Education in Social Work (AGESW) will not be selecting a 2020 AGESW Pre-Dissertation Fellows cohort. We plan to resume the program for the 2021-2022 academic year and will extend eligibility to include first and second year social work doctoral students. For the upcoming year, we will plan to offer a series of free webinars to all social work doctoral students. (You do not need to be a member of AGESW to participate.) Our first was a Student Night webinar on May 7th. We will keep you updated when new webinars are scheduled.
