NAM Healthy Longevity Catalyst Awards - 2022

Healthy Longevity
Applications Open

The National Academy of Medicine (NAM) is accepting applications for the 2022 cycle of its US-based Catalyst Awards. These awards are part of the Healthy Longevity Global Competition which is a three-phase awards program designed to identify and support bold, innovative, and potentially breakthrough ideas to improve health as people age, in turn allowing individuals to live more enriching lives and stay active in their communities, families, and the workforce well into their later years. Up to 25 successful innovators will each receive a cash prize of US$50,000 plus travel costs to attend the annual Global Innovator Summit in 2023. The competition is open to United Sates residents or institutions of any background or discipline. In order to apply, applicants need to complete the simple 2-page application form. All applicants advancing to the final stages of the Catalyst Award review process are automatically considered for subsequent funding in the form of an Accelerator Award - the second phase of the Global Competition - worth $150,000 to more than $1 million USD.

Global collaborator organizations are also administering Catalyst Award competitions in their respective countries and regions concurrently and these can be found on the Healthy Longevity Global Competition website.
