AGESW Predissertation Awards Available
The Association for Gerontology Education in Social Work (AGESW), along with support from the Gerontological Society of America (GSA), will provide support for a cohort of ten social work doctoral students who have completed the first year of doctoral studies.

Recipients will receive more than ten hours of programming delivered by nationally recognized experts in gerontological social work research and teaching designed to prepare participants for an academic career in gerontological social work. The Program will be delivered at the 2014 Gerontological Society of America (GSA) conference in Washington, DC. Awardees will be selected by the AGESW Pre-Dissertation Advisory Council.
