3. 그외에도 non-profit foundation에서 수여하는 research grant들이 있습니다.
예를 들자면 AFAR(American Federation for Aging Research: www.afar.org)에서는 대학원생과 post-doc을 위한 grant가 있었는데 현재는 discontinue 상태이며 junior faculty가 지원가능한 grant는 다음과 같습니다.
AFAR Research Grants
AFAR provides up to $60,000 for a one- to two-year award to junior faculty (M.D.'s and Ph.D.'s) to do research that will serve as the basis for longer term research efforts. AFAR-supported investigators study a broad range of biomedical and clinical topics including the causes of cellular senescence, the role of estrogen in the development of osteoporosis, the genetic factors associated with Alzheimer's disease, the effects of nutrition and exercise on the aging process, and much more. Since 1981, over 600 AFAR Research Grants have been awarded. Deadline for receipt of application is December 15, 2005.
