Newman Award for International Intergenerational Project Initiatives

The Newman Award for International Intergenerational Project Initiatives, supported by a privately funded endowment, is intended to defray expenses of international travel incurred by University of Pittsburgh graduate and rising undergraduate students involved in an academic project with an international intergenerational component. Intergenerational projects involve the participation of a community’s older and younger persons in planned, ongoing interactions that address a social issue confronting the community. These projects directly impact the health, education or overall quality of life of the community’s young and old. Thus, the award supports programmatic development (preferred) or research initiatives that enrich the lives of local people in a developing country. The award will not be granted for conference participation. Learn more >
