Carin Mannheimer Award for Emerging Scholars


Through a generous donation to the Centre for Ageing and Health (AgeCap), at the University of Gothenburg, it is possible for emerging scholars affiliated with AgeCap to apply for research support from the “Fund in Memory of Carin Mannheimer”.

Carin Mannheimer’s award for emerging scholars can be awarded to all types of research on aging and older adults. The definition of Emerging scholars refers to those

  1. who are not yet qualified for being a docent, and
  2. who have earned their PhD within the last 10 years.

Carin Mannheimer was a well-known cultural personality, author, and playwright in Sweden. Many of her productions focused on ageing and the conditions of older adults.

More details about the award will be published during fall 2018.
