I would like to support the GGS Scholarship Fund:


 

The Georgia Gerontology Society provides
scholarship opportunities to outstanding graduate
and undergraduate students who are committed to pursuing a career in the field of aging.

Two scholarships are awarded each year. The Robert P. Wray Scholarship of $2,000 is awarded to one undergraduate student, and the Virginia M. Smyth Scholarship of $3,000 is awarded to one graduate student to promote students’ interest in age-related issues and to promote professional development in gerontology.

Scholarship Award winners are recognized at the GGS annual conference. The 58th annual conference in 2013 will be held in Augusta, GA at the Marriott Riverfront (August 12-14, 2013). The two winning students will be recognized at the awards brunch. In addition to the scholarships, conference fees will be waived for the winners. In addition, they each will receive hotel and mileage reimbursement and a one-year membership in GGS, an additional $500-$600 value.

The postmark deadline to submit an application for the scholarship
competition is April 25, 2014. Students must complete and submit the
scholarship application packet to Abby Cox at the address listed on the nomination form. Incomplete application packets or packets ostmarked after April 25, 2014 will not be considered. Winners will be notified by May 30, 2014.
