Glenn Award for Research in Biological Mechanisms of Aging
Glenn Awards were initiated in 2007, to provide unsolicited funds to researchers investigating the biology of aging. The grants are to assist scientists where funding shortages threaten to impede scientific progress. Award recipients are selected from nominees provided by an anonymous scientific advisory committee. Applications are not accepted.
Glenn/AFAR Breakthroughs in Gerontology Awards
The goal of the Glenn/AFAR BIG program is to provide timely support to a small number of pilot research programs that may be of relatively high risk but which offer significant promise of yielding transforming discoveries in the fundamental biology of aging. Full-time faculty members at the rank of Assistant Professor or higher who can demonstrate a strong record of independence are eligible. Up to four two-year grants of up to $200,000 each will be awarded.

Glenn/AFAR Scholarships for Research in the Biology of Aging
The Glenn/AFAR Scholarships for Research in the Biology of Aging have been established in order to continue to attract new generations of talented investigators to the field of aging research. The program is designed to give students enrolled in MD, DO, PhD, or combined-degree programs the opportunity to conduct a three-to-six month research project focused on biomedical research in aging.
