Road Scholar Offers Caregiver Grants for Adults 50+

RoadScholar -Caregiver GrantFor close to 40 years, not-for-profit Road Scholar has made it possible for adults on limited incomes to experience its educational adventures through a generous financial aid program. In 2015, it expanded its financial assistance to individuals caring for an ill or disabled spouse or family member. In all, the organization has dedicated $250,000 in annual funds to make the enriching benefits of lifelong learning accessible to all older adults.

Road Scholar is actively seeking applicants for these new, $1,300 caregiver grants for caregivers to offset the cost of attending a U.S. based Road Scholar learning adventure. We are reaching out to caregiver support groups, senior citizen centers, adult day services groups and organizations like thecaregiverspace.org to get the word out. Interested applicants can visit www.roadscholar.org/caregiver to learn if they are eligible.
