Visiting Scholars Program

The Center for Aging and Policy Studies (CAPS) hosts an annual Visiting Scholars Program. The program facilitates interactions between CAPS faculty and student affiliates and other prominent scholars in the demography and economics of aging.

The 2020 Visiting Scholar Program will occur October 26-30, 2020.

The awardee will receive a $1000 honorarium, meet with CAPS faculty and student affiliates, and give the keynote address for the CAPS Annual Conference. The 2020 conference will be held virtually during October 29-30. The 2020 awardee may participate in the program virtually or on-site at Syracuse University, depending on their preference and public health guidelines regarding travel and social interactions in the fall. All travel expenses associated with an on-site visit will be covered. We welcome suggestions from awardees on how to best engage in the program

Questions about, or interest in, the program should be sent to Jennifer Karas Montez, CAPS Director, at
