AGE-ADAR Scholars Program accepting applications

The WVU Appalachian Gerontology Experiences: Advancing Diversity in Aging Research Scholars Program invites rising sophomores and juniors in MSTEM disciplines who are from underrepresented backgrounds and interested in learning about aging research to apply for the 2024 Paid Summer Research Internship. 

The six-week summer program will run from May 13 to June 21. 

Applications open through Feb. 15.

Funded by the National Institute on Aging, the AGE-ADAR Scholars Program, headed by Principal Investigator Julie Hicks Patrick, professor of psychology, has trained 49 undergraduate research scholars since the program’s inception on the WVU campus in 2020. The scholars have presented research related to aging and health disparities in Appalachia at over 60 national, regional and local conferences and symposia.
