"By funding this scholarship, we are giving a deserving student the ability to complete their degree, something they may not have had the opportunity to do otherwise, and we are essentially recruiting someone who we feel will help us raise awareness of nursing home abuse and help improve the plight of seniors in their community." The organization went on to add that the scholarship will be awarded to an applicant who has experienced the consequences of nursing home abuse firsthand through a close friend or relative and is passionate about preventing further abuse in the community, and/or an applicant that is looking to pursue a career providing help or healthcare for the elderly.
