Scholarships for Students Who Are Caregivers – As the population of older adults continues to grow and life spans lengthen, more and more young people are taking on the caregiver role for older loved ones. While the exact number of young people taking on this responsibility is not well understood, it’s estimated to be in the millions.
On top of their demanding caregiving duties, many of these young people are simultaneously pursuing high school, college, or graduate-level education. Scholarships for student-caregivers help ease the financial burden faced by these extremely hardworking students.
We understand that student caregivers may not have the time to scour the Internet to find available scholarships to help them pay for college. That’s why we’re handling some of that research by compiling and updating the below list to ensure they have access to the latest caregiver scholarships and information. Link: www.caring.com/caregivers/scholarships-for-student-caregivers/
20 Teaching Scholarships for Education Students – Even when the time seems right and you’ve made the commitment to pursue a bachelor’s or graduate degree in education, it can still be hard to come to terms with the cost of tuition. The Education Data Initiatives’ 2021 report states that the cost of yearly tuition, room and board at 4-year colleges is on average, around $25,864, and that figure just keeps rising.
That’s where college financial aid and teaching scholarships come in. Unfortunately, many students view scholarships as awards given to only the most extraordinary, sought-after and recruited athletes and valedictorians. This view can keep well-qualified students out of the running for scholarships and financial assistance that could allow them to pursue their educational goals, enrich their life experiences, change their futures, and potentially open up rewarding paths in teaching.
