Dear Friend and Colleague,

 

As someone who is in direct contact with doctoral candidates, we thought that you would be an appropriate contact regarding a research grant that may benefit your research and/or the graduate students with whom you work.

 

Elderhostel is accepting applications for the Exploritas K. Patricia Cross Doctoral Research Grant. This grant is open to U.S. and international students whose doctoral research focuses on lifelong and/or later-life learning. Exploritas is the new program name of Elderhostel, Inc., the not-for-profit world leader in lifelong learning.

 

Please note that the application deadline has been extended one month later to Friday, April 30, 2010 due to an erroneous email sent with this later deadline date.

 

Please pass on the information below to anyone who would be interested in applying for this $5,000 grant, or anyone who may know someone interested in applying. We envision that graduate students researching activities regarding older adults, faculty, department chairs and deans may want to know about this grant.

 

Exploritas K. Patricia Cross Doctoral Research Grant

Elderhostel invites applications from doctoral candidates researching lifelong or later-life learning for the Elderhostel K. Patricia Cross Doctoral Research Grant. This $5,000 grant is awarded annually to a student in various disciplines including, but not limited to, psychology, education, gerontology, cognitive studies, neuroscience, leisure studies, aging and social work. Because the selection committee requires an abstract and description of your current research, you must already be engaged in your dissertation research.  International graduate students welcome to apply.

 

The application deadline is Friday, April 30, 2010. Please be sure to have all application material submitted by midnight EDT, including your CV/resume, 2-3 page abstract and at least one of your recommendations.

 

The Exploritas K. Patricia Cross Doctoral Research Grant recipient will be determined by a selection committee consisting of professors, practitioners and other leaders in the field of lifelong learning. The recipient will be announced in late June 2010.

 

For further information, including requirements and the online application, please visit: www.exploritas.org/grants.

 

Elderhostel, founded in 1975, is a not-for-profit organization providing educational opportunities through travel for older adults across the United States and in 90 countries around the world. The Exploritas K. Patricia Cross Doctoral Research Grant was created to support future leaders in the field of lifelong learning. Exploritas is the new program name of Elderhostel, Inc.

 

Should you have any questions about the Exploritas K. Patricia Cross Doctoral Grant, please email grants@exploritas.org or call (617) 457-5529.
