    SCHOLARSHIPS FOR STUDENT CAREGIVERS-As the population of older adults continues to grow and life spans lengthen, more and more young people are taking on the role of caregiver for older loved ones.  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.
