Do you have employees interested in going back to school, getting a certification/specialization, or taking a class? The LeadingAge Kansas Foundation Scholarship can help! This scholarship program is available exclusively to the employees of LeadingAge Kanas member organizations. Applications are being accepted through August 1, 2021. 

This program provides scholarships to full and part-time employees of LeadingAge Kansas member organizations. To date, over 80 scholarships totaling around $70,000 have been given to support aging services professionals in reaching their goals. Any educational program that increases the employee’s capacity to serve elders will be considered by the scholarship application review team. Previous winners have used scholarships for programs like CMA, administrator-in-training, culinary school, BS in Human Resources, personal training certificate, MS in Divinity, CDM, SSD, wound care, and nursing school.

This year the foundation hopes to receive more scholarship applications from more non-licensed aging services professionals, but all are welcome to apply. Get your application started or encourage a team member to apply today! Applications must be submitted by August 1, 2021. To learn more about the scholarship, view past winners or apply, visit our website.
