Initiative: Healthy Longevity

Applications Open: 
January 13, 2020 to February 24, 2020

The National Academy of Medicine (NAM) is accepting applications for NAM Healthy Longevity Catalyst Awards through the website of the American Federation for Aging Research. A two-page application is all it takes to be considered for one of up to 24 awards worth $50,000 each plus travel to the 2021 Innovator Summit in Washington, DC. Individuals and teams residing in the United States are invited to submit applications detailing bold, innovative, and potentially transformative ideas to improve the mental, physical, and social well-being of people as they age. Applications may originate from any field or combination of fields and may focus on any stage of life, as long as they ultimately promote health as people age. The NAM Healthy Longevity Catalyst Awards are part of the Healthy Longevity Global Competition launched in October 2019 by the NAM and global collaborators representing over 40 countries and territories.
