New Behavioral and Social Science Funding Opportunities from NIA and NIH   
  • The USC AD/ADRD Resource Center for Minority Aging Research (RCMAR) Scientist is currently accepting applications for junior scientists to fund one-year research pilot projects. Pilot projects with a focus on cognitive decline and/or Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias are encouraged. Learn more and submit a letter of intent and CV by February 16, 2024.

  • The University of Texas at Austin Center on Aging and Population Sciences (CAPS) is requesting pilot projects on LGBTQ+ population aging. Learn more and submit proposal by February 16, 2024.

  • The Columbia University AD/ADRD RCMAR Center is soliciting pilot proposals that address the fundamental causes of AD/ADRD disparities (racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia) using multiple levels of analysis (environmental, sociocultural, behavioral, and biological). Learn more, submit a letter of intent by February 21, 2024, and submit a full proposal on March 8, 2024.

  • The Network on Education, Biosocial Pathways, and Dementia across Diverse Population is soliciting pilot proposals that will advance science in the education—dementia relationship. Learn more and submit proposal by February 26, 2024 at 11:59 PM ET.

  • The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) RCMAR Center requests applications for the 2024 CADC Scientist Program.  Those selected will conduct a one-year pilot study to investigate research questions within the scope of CADC’s goals among older Black/African American, Latino/a/x, Asian American, Pacific Islander, Native American/American Indian populations, sexual and gender minorities of any race/ethnicity, or the intersection of disability and those populations. Learn more and submit an application by March 1, 2024, at 5 PM PST.

  • The NIA IMPACT Collaboratory is currently accepting applications for pilot ePCTs that test non-pharmacological interventions embedded in health care system(s) for people living with AD/ADRD and their care partners. All applications must make a convincing case that the pilot ePCT proposed can be scaled up to a full-scale Stage IV effectiveness ePCT as the next step.  Learn more and submit a letter of intent by March 3, 2024, at 5 PM ET.

  • The Rutgers University AD/ADRD RCMAR Center is requesting pilot proposals that focus on the intersection of AD/ADRD-related psychosocial risk factors, detection, and health outcomes involving older Asian Americans. Learn more and apply by April 1, 2024, by 11:59 PM ET.
