ENAS offers several benefits to its members. Among them are:

  • MENTORSHIP PROGRAM: to pair mentees with suitable mentors who can give career advice and provide feedback on drafts of papers, book proposals, and grant applications. This mentorship program will also enable collaboration that can take many forms such as co-authoring articles, participating in PhD and promotion committees, or building research consortia in response to specific funding schemes. The ENAS Mentorship Program will run for a year after which the pilot will be evaluated and further strategies for implementation discussed.     
  • PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM FOR GRANT APPLICATIONS: we support networking in the context of funding applications and distribute calls for grant applications.
  • DISCOUNTED REGISTRATION: at ENAS conferences and summer schools.
  • BEST PhD DISSERTATION PRIZE/ BEST MA THESIS PRIZE: ENAS supports emerging researchers in the field of Aging Studies, among others by awarding a prize for best PhD thesis and best MA thesis in Aging Studies at our conferences.
