NIA Grants for Secondary Analysis

April 13, 2001

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) is seeking small grant applications to: 1) stimulate and facilitate secondary analyses of data and data archiving related to demography, economics, and behavioral research on aging; 2) provide support for preliminary projects using secondary analysis that could lead to subsequent applications for other research project grant award mechanisms; 3) provide support for rapid analyses of new databases and experimental modules for purposes such as informing the design and content of future study waves; and 4) provide support for the development, enhancement and assembly of new databases from existing data.

This Small Grant Program is designed to: support researchers interested in undertaking secondary analyses of data related to demography, economics, and behavioral research on aging; provide support for preliminary projects using secondary analysis that could lead to subsequent applications for individual research awards; provide support for rapid analyses of new databases and experimental modules for purposes such as informing the design and content of future study waves; and provide support for publicly archiving datasets (including salient psychological and sociological data) relevant to demographic, economic, and behavioral analyses of the older population.

Approximately $1,000,000 (total costs) will be available to fund 10 to 15 small grants each fiscal year, contingent on high scientific merit and program priorities.
