The AAG Research Trust is the research grant arm of AAG. Between us, we have over 60 years' experience in connecting research, policy and practice. While AAG serves as its corporate trustee, the Research Trust is a wholly independent charitable organisation that relies entirely on individual and organisational gifts to fund innovative work that aims to improve and optimise the lived experience of ageing.
Uniquely placed within Australia's peak national body for researchers and professionals working across the multidisciplinary fields of ageing, our grants enable important work that often falls outside the criteria of other large government funding programs. In this way, the Research Trust promotes AAG's fundamental commitment to improving the experience of ageing by connecting research, policy and practice.
All current funding programs have been made possible by generous bequests and donations, and through strategic partnerships with organisations such as The Dementia Australia Research Foundation.
