Age-Friendly Funding Alert: MIT OMEGA Scholarships Applications Due 3/31

Mar 26, 2019

Through the generous sponsorship of the MIT AgeLab and AARP, OMEGA is proud to offer three $1000 college scholarships to recognize and reward the efforts that young adults are making to create multigenerational connections.

High school juniors and seniors living in one of the six New England states (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont) are eligible to apply for scholarships. Each OMEGA scholarship will award a $1000 college scholarship to the winning student and $1000 to the winning student’s intergenerational program to support its activities to build relationships between teens and older adults. We particularly encourage students who are working with older adults in the areas of transportation, livable communities, technology, services, caregiving, and wellbeing.

Applications for the 2019 OMEGA scholarship are now open! The deadline to submit applications is March 31st. Both the student and a recommender must fill out an application:
