Administrator-in-Training Scholarship

At LeadingAge PA, we strive to support the senior living field by inspiring future nursing home administrators to lead while enhancing their professional experiences.
 
As a result, we sponsor a scholarship program dedicated to supporting LeadingAge PA members who plan on hosting an Administrator-in-Training (AIT) candidate in a Pennsylvania State Board of Examiners of Nursing Home Administrators-approved program. We invite qualified members to apply for this scholarship that supplements expenses to employ AITs during their training period. The application period for the 2019 scholarship is now open. Applications will be accepted until May 17, 2019. The Administrator-in-Training Scholarship recipient will be presented the award at the 2019 LeadingAge PA Annual Conference + EXPO at the Hershey Lodge in June.

The 2019 AIT Scholarship application can be found here.

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 2019, we will award $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.
