“To know how to grow old is the master work of wisdom, and one of the most difficult chapters in the great art of living.” -Herman Melville.

Seniors often get overlooked despite the impressive wisdom and life experience they have. It is critical that younger generations learn from seniors and do what they can to make their lives better.

This scholarship aims to support students who are passionate about caring for seniors and improving their lives.

Any student who is involved in caring for seniors may apply for this scholarship. To apply, tell us one thing you do to make the lives of the elderly people in your community better.

One thing I do to improve the lives of the elderly people in my community, is by working as a caregiver. As a caregiver, I help with the daily tasks the elderly population may have a difficult time completing on their own. I help make simple meals, tidy up their homes, and keep them company whenever they need. Recently, I spent the day with an elderly woman, and all we did was talk about her family and watch "Let's Make A Deal" together. It felt great to keep her company and learn more about her life. Besides working as a part-time caregiver, I also help take care of my grandmother. She has Dementia, and like I spend time with and take care of my clients, I do the same with her. She may not have the ability to remember my name at times, but that doesn't stop us from laughing at old movies and going on drives around the neighborhood together. I'll always cherish this time with my grandmother, and I know how much it means to her that she has someone to talk to, laugh, and spend time with.
