The deTornyay Center for Healthy Aging offers students in the UW School of Nursing opportunities to learn about ways professionals can promote optimal experiences for older adults and engage in aging related research. One of the major activities of the deTornyay Center for Healthy Aging is to support projects that focus on older adults. Each year, we invite scholarship applications from undergraduate and graduate students interested in completing a research project related to aging. Scholarship awards announced by the beginning of November and funds disbursed by the end of autumn quarter.
Undergraduate scholarships encourage junior and senior baccalaureate nursing students to carry out a research activity or project in the field of aging. Under the mentorship of a nursing faculty member, students are encouraged to examine questions that build on pre-existing studies or to develop their own research projects. The award amount is $2,000.
Graduate scholarships encourage master’s and doctoral nursing students to pursue research activities in the field of aging and gerontological nursing. These activities may be preliminary to a capstone or dissertation or the final project itself. Funds are unrestricted and may be used at the discretion of the student to facilitate completion of the research. Award amounts vary from $5,000 to $7,500.
