AAG Research Trust is a wholly independent charitable organisation relying entirely on individual and organisational gifts.

The AAG Research Trust was set up in 2016, with AAG as the corporate trustee of the AAG Research Trust. Please click here for more information on the establishment of the AAG Research Trust.

The Chair of the AAG Research Trust, Professor Linda Rosenman, said the grants provide support to creative and high quality projects that will make a difference in the field of ageing.

‘The AAG Research Trust has grown significantly since 2017 from one funding program for three grants distributing $15,000 to three funding programs offering ten grants that total $165,000. This would not be possible without the support of our most valued donors and partnerships including with the Dementia Australia Research Foundation.’
