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.
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.
How to Apply
We’re looking for a 1500-word essay or 2-minute video addressing the following questions:
- Who are you caring for and how are you involved as their caregiver?
- How has your role as a caregiver influenced the decision for your major/career path?
- How would this scholarship be helpful to you in your current student-caregiving role?
