A Place for Mom is proud to offer scholarships to university students interested in the fields of aging and gerontology. As North America’s largest senior living referral service, we know the importance of supporting the training and education of our future senior care leaders.
Scholarships will be awarded to a citizen or a Permanent Resident of the United States or Canada (excluding Quebec) who is enrolled and currently taking classes at an accredited college or university in the United States or Canada (excluding Quebec), and will grant selected applicants a $2,000 financial donation for their compelling submissions on life lessons from a senior.
We accept submissions year round but in order to be eligible for the next award submissions need to reach A Place for Mom by May 1. The winners will be announced by June 7. Submissions received after May 1 will automatically be considered for future awards.
Student may choose to send either an essay or a video submission on the following topic: What are the most important life lessons that you have learned from a grandparent or other senior in your life? How will you use the lessons learned from them in your future career in working with seniors?
Large video files (20MB or larger) should be uploaded to Vimeo or YouTube and the link included in an email to [email protected]. Please note that our email system will not accept .zip files.
