The student affiliate program at the Institute on Aging and Lifelong Health was started in 2012, where with the support of a faculty member who is familiar with their work, an UVic student can become an affiliate for the duration of their degree. Our student affiliates are a mosaic of different faculties and areas of interest, studying geography, health information science, nursing, psychology, public administration, public health and social policy, social dimensions of health, social work, sociology, and studies in policy and practice as well as those working towards interdisciplinary degrees. 

The Institute supports their individual research by assisting them with participant recruitment, providing space to conduct their study, offering scholarships, delivering training on thesis presentations, and planning networking opportunities.
