The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to invite applications from institutions proposing to develop, or renew, a Resource Center for Minority Aging Research (RCMAR) that focuses on behavioral and social science research in a key area related to aging and/or to health disparities in older adults. Successful applications will propose the use of multi-pronged collaborative approaches in a supportive environment that embraces, integrates, and strengthens diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA), to achieve the two-fold goal of the RCMAR program:

  • to diversify the research workforce in priority areas of social, behavioral, psychological, and economic research on aging by mentoring promising scientists from diverse backgrounds; and
  • to develop a research and mentoring infrastructure to foster rigorous behavioral and social science research on aging in a high priority research area, that can advance aging-relevant scientific discoveries, lead to the elimination of health disparities and health inequities, and improve the health and well-being of older adults who are members of NIAs Priority Populations, as specified in the NIA Health Disparities Research Framework.
