Clarence Pearson Fellowship in Public Health and Aging at the American Federation for Aging Research

Clarence Pearson Fellowship in Public Health and Aging at the American Federation for Aging Research

The American Federation for Aging Research welcomes applications from master’s degree candidates or recent graduates for the Clarence Pearson Fellowship in Public Health and Aging. The fellowship will be 3-4 months, spanning Summer-Fall 2020.

The Pearson program was launched by AFAR in 2015 to provide future leaders in public health and related academic fields with exposure to the range of policy, administration, research, and engagement opportunities to better serve the growing older population.

AFAR will offer two Pearson Fellowships for Summer/Fall 2020. Given the global coronavirus pandemic and its disproportionate impact on older adults, AFAR is seeking individuals interested in examining COVID-19 through the lens of the aging research infrastructure or health disparities. Applicants must indicate to which track (i.e. A or B below) they are applying.

A. The Impact of COVID-19 on the Aging Research Infrastructure.

B. COVID-19-Related Health Disparities Among Older Adults.

For more information, see the call for applications.

Applications are due by July 20, 2020 to Erin Beck.
