This program has two aims. One, providing early career investigators entering the field of dementia research with a broad education about contemporary dementia research. Two, providing early career investigators with mentoring by experienced investigators in developing competitive grant applications.

Early career investigators from underrepresented group in STEM are encouraged to apply.

The program is a two-year program with a projected start date of July 1, 2021.
