Gerontology students >>> Enter the The Stanford Center on Longevity Design Challenge, a new competition aimed at encouraging students to design products and services to improve the lives of older adults.  The challenge topic is chosen in collaboration with aging service providers and investors, who identify the most pressing needs. Finalists will be given the opportunity to present their designs and discuss possible further collaborations with interested industry partners.  Not only are travel and research costs supplemented but the final awards are $10K, $5K, and $2K for the top three finalists.  Give it a go!
