The Companions & Homemakers, Inc. Caregiver Scholarship Fund was founded in 2015 to mark the company’s 25th year of Preserving Dignity Through Independence at Home; something possible only through the dedication of our devoted caregivers. Scholarships, also called ‘Awards’, may be awarded annually to one or more qualified recipients in any amount up to $5,000.
Persons eligible to receive the Award are limited to caregivers employed by Companions & Homemakers, Inc. for at least six consecutive months who are currently working for C&H, their children, and their grandchildren. Applicants may apply for the Award with no regard as to whether they are in their first, second, third or final year of coursework.
What the Scholarship Can Be Used For
Awards may be used to defray tuition costs to attend any post-secondary school; provided, the Award may not be used for programs that are “online” only; the Recipient’s coursework must require attendance at classroom facilities. The Award is not payable until the Recipient has commenced (at least) their second semester in good academic standing and is not payable in any amount exceeding one semester of tuition fees. The Award may be paid to the academic institution, or to the Recipient or Recipient’s family as reimbursement upon proof of tuition paid to the academic institution. Prior recipients of the Award are not eligible to apply for or receive a second Award.
