GEAR-UP Program

We are excited to share that the National Institute on Aging has funded a brand-new undergraduate research training program, GEAR UP.  This joint venture between the Population Aging Research Center (PARC) and the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics (Penn LDI) will build on the successful and long-standing Summer Undergraduate Minority Research (SUMR) Program, by providing exciting mentored research experiences to undergraduates for two consecutive summers, supplemented with programming throughout the academic year. The long-term goal of the program is to enhance the diversity of the research workforce in the demography and economics of aging, health, and healthcare. Learn more about the GEAR-UP program.
