Sloan Fellowship on Aging and Work

The Sloan Fellowship on Aging and Work

The Sloan Fellowship on Aging and Work is a two-year, interdisciplinary postdoctoral fellowship that addresses the challenges of aging societies and labor force participation in the U.S. The HCPDS is able to offer this program thanks to generous funding from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

NOTE: The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation has ended its grant program on “Working Longer” hence we sadly accepted our final cohort of Sloan Fellows last year.

The Sloan Fellows and associated Harvard faculty address issues related to work and retirement by identifying:

  1. the current challenges of working longer in the U.S.
  2. potential solutions to the ways in which the United States’ public and private sectors will need to adapt employment policies and practices to optimize both the economic well-being and the health of the population.
