Student Caregiver Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: September 30, 2021

At Nelson Elder Care Law we have a great appreciation for those who put others first and care for those who are unable to functionally care for themselves. As the population of aging adults continues to rise, the responsibility and role of a caregiver falls onto younger adults. As Elder Law attorneys, we understand the demanding lifestyle a student caregiver may face trying to balance caring for others while maintaining their studies. That is why we are proud to sponsor our Student Caregiver Scholarship for the 2021 school year!

The Student Caregiver Scholarship's purpose is to award one compassionate student who spends their time helping elderly adults. This scholarship is open to those who volunteer with seniors either at a long-term care facility or nursing home, those who take care of an elderly family member, or those who help the aging in another way. We want to hear why you chose to help and care for the aging and how volunteering has shaped you.

To be considered eligible for the Student Caregiver Scholarship, students must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program within the United States. High school seniors who will be enrolled in college before the application deadline of September 30, 2021 are also encouraged to to apply.
