Small Grant Winners
The "SES and Health across Generations and over the Life Course" small grants competition was supported by a grant to PSID from NIA. An expert review committee selected 8 of the 40 submissions for an award on the basis of thematic relevance, significance, innovation, feasibility, strength of research design, and likelihood of leading to a larger externally funded research project. The awardees, their institutions, and their projects are as follows:
