The PAA fosters interdisciplinary research on the causes and impact of population dynamics and its implications for policies and programs worldwide. For more than twenty years, the Foundation has supported Association initiatives to build the developing world’s capacity to produce high-quality demographic research. This recommended grant would continue support for a competitive travel grant program that brings scholars from developing countries to the Association’s annual meetings, keeping them connected to current research, methodologies, and professional networks.
