CDHA Scholar-in-Residence Program

CDHA Scholars-in-Residence

The CDHA Scholar-in-Residence Program has two aims: to support research by U.S.-based health and aging scholars from underrepresented racial and ethnic populations; and to enhance resources and networks available to these scholars.

Applicants may choose to visit CDHA for approximately one week, to become acquainted with resident faculty, staff, and resources and present a seminar.

Call for Applications

Scholar-in-Residence program applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Applicants should send a CV, tentative seminar topic and short list of UW researchers with overlapping interests to Jason Fletcher (jason.fletcher@wisc.edu).
