Through the generous sponsorship of the MIT AgeLab, the New England University Transportation Center, and AARP, OMEGA is proud to offer three $1000 college scholarships to recognize and reward the efforts that young adults are making to create multigenerational connections.
High school juniors and seniors living in one of the six New England states (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont) are eligible to apply for scholarships. Each OMEGA scholarship will award a $1000 college scholarship to the winning student and $1000 to the winning student’s high school organization to support its activities to build relationships between teens and older adults.
Three separate scholarships are available; one OMEGA scholarship will be awarded in each of the following categories: Transportation and Community; Technology; and Social Connectivity. Scholarship applications are due in the spring and scholarships will be given in early summer.
