Henry Welch Scholarship in Aging
The Henry W. Welch Scholarship in Aging honors one of the Colorado Gerontological Society founders, whose commitment and dedication to the field of aging and human services spanned more than forty years. Dr. Welch was a forerunner and pioneer in the field of aging.
This scholarship is designed to encourage academic studies in the field of aging, including gerontology, social work, public policy or various medical fields with emphasis in aging such as geriatrics, pharmacy, physical therapy, psychology or nursing. Applicants from other fields are welcome to apply, but should have a focus or concentration on working with or for the elderly. Each award is for $1000 per academic year.
Applicants must be full-time matriculated students at an accredited Colorado college or university. Applications for 2013 are due no later than November 20, 2012. Winners will be required to attend the Society's Annual Meeting in the fall to be awarded the scholarship.
