The aim of the Hal Kendig Research Development Program (HKRDP) of the AAG Research Trust is to build the capacity of early career researchers to develop a track record in applying for grants, and to support a discrete research effort. Priority is given to applied research that aims to improve the experience of vulnerable older people in advanced aged, with a strong emphasis on psycho-social research and quality of life.
This grant program is made possible by a generous donation from the family of Emeritus Professor Hal Kendig.
Purpose of the HKRDP
The purpose of grants made available through the HKRDP is to:
Enable a discrete research project that provides evidence and critical thinking to further the interests of vulnerable older people in advanced age, with a strong emphasis on the psycho-social aspects of ageing and quality of life;
Support early career researchers to improve their track record to lead to future research funding (a grant or a fellowship), and to support a discrete research effort that provides evidence and critical thinking that furthers the interests of vulnerable older people in advanced age (with a strong emphasis on quality of life and psycho-social dimensions of wellbeing);
Help early career researchers build their grant record for future applications for larger grants and/or fellowships.
