These Scholarships, established in 2003, are to support scientists in the early stages of their careers conducting research into ageing. The HOPE Foundation wishes to encourage more research into ageing phenomena both individual and societal, because it believes that as the nation ages, the issues to be addressed in order to cope with the effects of an ageing population will be widespread throughout New Zealand society.
