Nominations for Media Awards

American Society on Aging Invites Nominations for Media Awards

Deadline: September 15, 2006

The ASA Media Awards are presented annually by the American Society on Aging ( http://www.asaging.org/) to journalists whose work has significantly increased general public awareness of aging issues at either the local, regional, or national level.

The ASA Media Awards are designed to recognize and encourage accurate and informed news coverage of our aging society; improve media understanding of the current and future impact of aging on Americans of all ages; and increase public awareness of the various life circumstances of older Americans.

The awards will be presented to journalists for news coverage published between September 1, 2005, and September 1, 2006. Submissions should focus on aging issues, rather than exemplify a range of work. Print, broadcast, and Web media journalists are eligible to apply.

Awards will be presented in two categories: 1) for media intended for and distributed to a national audience; and 2) for media intended for and distributed to a local or regional audience. For journalists with elder-specific publications or productions, the work is eligible if it has demonstrated general public impact.

Complete program information is available at the ASA Web site.

Academic Geriatric Nursing Capacity Awards

American Academy of Nursing Seeks Applications for Building Academic Geriatric Nursing Capacity Awards Program

Deadline: January 9, 2007

The John A. Hartford Foundation (http://www.jhartfound.org/) recognizes the centrality of nurses to the care of older adults. In 2000, and in partnership with the American Academy of Nursing (http://www.aannet.org/ ), JAHF launched a multi-million-dollar Building Academic Geriatric Nursing Capacity Scholars Award Program to produce expert researchers, academicians, and practitioners who will lead the field of gerontology nursing and ultimately improve the care of the elderly. The program includes the distinguished Scholar & Fellow Awards Program.

The Scholar & Fellow Awards Program seeks applicants for the following scholarships and fellowships:

The Predoctoral Scholarship program is designed to support two years of doctoral work for nurses committed to careers in academic geriatric nursing. The program offers support at the
level of $30,000 in stipend and up to $20,000 in tuition and fee support for each of two years.

The Masters in Business Administration Scholarship program is designed to support one year of work toward a Masters in Business Administration or related degree. The program provides a total of $50,000 in support.

The Postdoctoral Fellowship program provides $60,000 of support for each of two years of advanced research training and mentorship designed to assist doctorally prepared nurses
committed to faculty careers in geriatric nursing.

The Mayday Fund provides an additional $5,000 award to selected candidates whose research includes the study of pain in the elderly.

Visit the Building Academic Geriatric Nursing Capacity Web site for complete program guidelines and application information.

Healthy Vision Community Awards

from the ELDERCARE@LISTSERV.IHS.GOV

Special Announcement from the National Eye Institute (NEI), National Institutes of Health

The NEI is pleased to announce the 2007 Healthy Vision Community Awards. This Program provides funding for the implementation of health education and health promotion activities that support the Healthy Vision 2010 objectives and the Healthy People 2010 goals to reduce health disparities and improve quality of life.

For more information about the 2007 Healthy Vision Community Awards, visit

www.healthyvision2010.org/news/hvca

…they are looking specifically for COMMUNITY-BASED programs to submit proposals, and they do NOT expect hard core scientific writing as a result. [does this mean communities can’t be expected to do hard-core science or that hard-core scientists aren’t expected to write?]

This is a GREAT opportunity with plenty of lead time for folks to think about a project and its focus, using one of the objectives below identified in Healthy People 2010. Deadline for submissions is August 31, 2006; see below for application information. Grants.gov is not being utilized because these are awards, not grants.

Nonprofit organizations are encouraged to apply, including community-based organizations and agencies, minority-based organizations, schools, faith-based organizations, civic and fraternal groups, community clinics, local Agencies on Aging, and local health departments and agencies. Universities and university-affiliates, such as medical centers, schools of optometry and ophthalmology, are precluded from receiving an award directly, but are welcome to collaborate with community-based organizations. Each award is not to exceed $10,000. Applications for 2007 must be postmarked by the U.S. Postal Service no later than Thursday, August 31, 2006. The final selection of award recipients will be based on the evaluation score, geographic and racial/ethnic representation, and project innovation. Awards will be announced in January 2007.

If you have questions about the application package or eligibility requirements please e-mail your questions or requests to: HVCAmail AT shs DOT net
