The Ted Nash Long Life Foundation out of Waco, Texas is inviting two proposals from UTMB.   Our institution is one of only seven medical schools in Texas and the Mayo Clinic invited to apply for these awards.  UTMB is allowed two (2) proposals.

The Ted Nash Long Life Foundation supports small medical research projects (no more than $100,000/year for 2 years) from tenured or tenure-track researchers.  Research results should eventually extend the life expectancy of the average American.

Expenditure requests may include the following categories:


  • Faculty research stipend for the Principal, not to exceed a total of $10,000 per year.
  • Postdoctoral fellowships should be set by the Qualified Grantee Institution. If there are no amounts set by the Qualified Grantee Institution, then the payments for Postdoctoral fellowships may not exceed $60,000 per year or$5,000 per month. Appointments should normally be for 12 months and, at least initially, for not less than three months.
  • Graduate fellowships should be set by the Qualified Grantee Institution. If there are no amounts set by the Qualified Grantee Institution, then the payments for Graduate fellowships may not exceed $54,000 per year or $4,500 per month. Appointments must cover at least one meaningful period such as an academic year, semester, quarter or summer, and where possible, a whole year.
  • Undergraduate scholarships, up to $24,000 per year.  Rates may not exceed $2,000 per month.  Appointments must cover at least one meaningful period, as described above.


  • Items with at least one-year useful life expectancy and costing $5,000 or more each.


  • During the grant performance period it will be necessary for the Qualified Grantee Institution to maintain a record of actual expenditures, by category, for inclusion in the annual Financial Statement.


  • Preparing and publishing the results of research accomplished under the grant, including page charges, reprints, and necessary illustrations, charts, graphs, etc.
