    Caring.com – Scholarship for Student Caregivers (multiple scholarship opportunities) -Class of 2019-Open

    Care giving is a challenging and demanding role at any age. In addition to the time investment, a 2017 Caring.com survey found that 38 percent of caregivers spend more than 30 hours a week caring for their loved one- care giving can also be a financial drain.

    Among survey respondents, 44 percent of caregivers spend at least $5,000 per year to care for their loved one, with 25 percent spending over $10,000 annually. These challenges can be exacerbated for young caregivers in school, who already face financial constraints and busy schedules while pursuing an education.
