Longevity research is a complex field that has great potential to help alleviate human suffering. If we think of longevity research as a way to extend the healthy years of life rather than extending the frail ones, its importance is beyond compare. In fact, longevity research might be the key to all humans, no matter their age, living more fulfilling lives. The Longevity Scholarship is awarded to the student who writes the most compelling essay about the advancement of human longevity. If you have a passion for longevity research along with drive and ambition to succeed, apply for this scholarship!
