WSU Regional Institute of Aging offers research funds

The Regional Institute on Aging (RIA) at Wichita State has a new funding opportunity for graduate student or faculty projects and research that addresses issues related to facilitating well-being in older adults.

This funding opportunity is supported by a gift from the estate of Evelyn Cassat. Funding will be provided for projects and research at WSU that contribute to knowledge and practice related to well-being in older adults, particularly proposals aimed at furthering WSU’s initiative of being an Age-Friendly University.

This includes advancing accessibility to courses, programs and university activities for the diverse range of older adults in the Wichita area and evaluations of these efforts.

Anticipated funding rates will range from $2,000 to $15,000, with a maximum funding amount of $20,000 for a 12-month period.

The application deadline is March 31. Email with questions.
