Student-Caregiver Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,500
Awards Available: 2

Are you caring for an adult relative while enrolled in a U.S. college or university? When you're living with your aging loved one, managing their finances because they no longer can, taking them to doctors appointments -- we know that caregiving can be both difficult and rewarding. As America's leading senior care resource for family caregivers, we know that juggling the responsibilities of caregiving and student life is a unique challenge.

Award

Caring.com is offering two $1,500 scholarships to two students attending an accredited U.S. college or university and caring for a loved one.

C) How would this scholarship be helpful to you in your current student-caregiving role?
