Description

Alzheimer's disease doesn't just affect the people who have been diagnosed with it; it also affects their loved ones, caregivers and people of all ages, including children. Each year, AFA holds a scholarship essay contest which asks students to describe how Alzheimer's disease changed or impacted their lives. Whether they've had a loved one with the disease, volunteered or worked as a caretaker or are just passionate about the cause, the next generation of leaders in the fight against Alzheimer's have a story tell. We want to hear it! All high school seniors who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents and plan to enter a four year college/university in 2018 are invited to take part in the 2018 contest. In 2017, AFA awarded $25,000 in college scholarships to students across the country through the program. In addition to the scholarships, the grand prize winner and runners up had their essays featured in AFA's Care Quarterly magazine, which has a national readership of approximately 250,000 people.
