There is a rising number of older adults in the United States, and around the world. There are health, economical, and social implications and decisions to be made that affect all of us, including older adults. Data need to be gathered in order to inform these important decisions. Thus, there is a critical need for (1) societies to develop greater investments in aging-related research, (2) researchers to apply for funding in order to develop evidence-based practice and programs to prevent or treat the major causes of diseases and disability, and (3) recruitment and retention of older adults in research. In this chapter we describe funding mechanisms related to aging research, given that funding allows researchers to generate data and create novel interventions. We describe the process involved with searching for aging research funding and discuss important considerations when writing aging-related grant proposals. Additionally, we describe the importance of and methods on, forming international collaborations.
