At Nelson Elder Care Law we have a great appreciation for those who put others first and care for those who are unable to functionally care for themselves, and as the population of elderly adults continues to rise, the responsibility and role of a caregiver falls onto younger adults. As elder care law attorneys, we understand the demanding lifestyle a student caregiver faces trying to balance caring for others while maintaining their studies. That is why we are proud to sponsor our Student Caregiver Scholarship for the 2022 school year!
The purpose of the $1,000 Student Caregiver Scholarship is to award one compassionate student who spends their time helping elderly adults. This scholarship is open to those who volunteer with seniors either at a long-term care facility or nursing home, those who take care of an elderly family member, or those who help the elderly in another way. We want to hear why you chose to help and care for the elderly, and how volunteering has shaped you.
To be considered eligible for the Student Caregiver Scholarship, students must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program within the United States. High school seniors who will be enrolled in college before the application deadline of September 30, 2022 are also encouraged to apply. Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 on 4.0 scale, and applications must be submitted on or by the deadline of September 30th.
A complete scholarship application must include:
All scholarship materials must be submitted on or before midnight on September 30, 2022. Applications received after the September 30th deadline will not be considered eligible.
Applications must be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “[Applicant’s First and Last Name] – 2022 Student Caregiver Scholarship”.

“On the threshold of retirement, we finally decided to quit thinking we could self-prepare the requisite documents. We had previously had only a very simple will. We needed the necessary legal (including updated will) & health care docs but didn’t want to deal with the time & complication of legalese. Cindy made the process relatively painless. She took the time to explain and answer questions without trying to upsell services. We were done in 2 meetings plus the reading of emailed drafts. In addition to preparing the documents, Nelson Eldercare will be there when our adult children need advice on executing the plans we’ve put in place.So glad it’s behind us and would recommend Cindy and her helpful staff.”
Cindy and her company treat their clients like family. Nelson’s offers clear, direct, and honest guidance in planning for your families security and future. No one wants to actively sit down and make these decisions, but Nelson’s makes this process seamless. I was so impressed with their willingness to answer all questions big or small. So glad I made the decision have them help my mom and dad and now me. You can’t go wrong with Nelson’s Elder Care Law.
The very best elder law attorney and staff anyone could ever ask for! I have referred a number of clients to Cindy and she never disappoints. She is kind, caring, and extremely thorough in making sure everything is completed as it should be. I highly recommend Cindy for anyone needing lawyer services; she truly goes above and beyond for every client she helps and has had a huge impact in so many peoples’ lives. Thank you, Cindy and staff, for everything that you do- I’m so glad to know you!
I heard Cindy’s presentation at a Senior Luncheon at my church, and was very impressed. She helped my daughter and me understand many aspects of elder law. Josh has also been very helpful in my planning to enter an independent living situation . I have told many friends about them.
Cindy and the Nelson Elder Care Law team are trustworthy and helpful. They are the experts in elder care law. At Leaf Cremation, we entrust our families to the care of the Nelson team when their services are needed.
