Professional Development Scholarship Program 

Each year, LeadingAge PA awards scholarships that enhance opportunities for member staff pursuing further education, training and certification — both within and outside of the field of nursing. 

In 2021, we are awarding $36,000 in professional development scholarships as follows:

  • Nursing - Awards of up to $1,200 each will be given to applicants of varying career levels who are pursuing a certification, associate's, bachelor's, master's, or doctoral degree in nursing.
  • Non-Nursing - Awards of up to $1,000 each will be given to applicants of varying career levels who are pursing a certification, associate, bachelor's, or master's degree in fields other than nursing.

We hope the committed team members receiving these LeadingAge PA education scholarships will continue their careers in the field of aging services for many years to come!

Higher Education Internship Grants

Paid higher education internships enhance professional experiences and can inspire a passion for leadership in future employees.
We are pleased to sponsor the Higher Education Internship Grants, dedicated to supporting LeadingAge PA members interested in providing a paid intern at their community over a period of eight to 10 weeks. In 2021, LeadingAge PA has committed funding for seven scholarships of $6,000. 

LeadingAge PA is excited to announce our 2021 Higher Education Internship Grant recipients!

Each recipient will receive a $6,000 grant to help defray the costs of hosting a paid college intern in their organization. We are pleased to offer this program for the past five years in continued support of workforce enhancements. Thank you to the Scholarship Task Force and Selection Committee, and congratulations to our grant winners!
