Education Scholarships

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 2020, we are awarding $27,000 in scholarships as follows:

  • Nursing - Awards of up to $1,000 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's, bachelor's, master's, or doctoral 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.
