Grant and Scholarship Information from Senator Joel Anderson

Thank you California Senator Joel Anderson for providing invaluable scholarship information to help aspiring college-bound students.

————————-

Dear Friends,

Do you know a college student or soon-to-be college student? Please forward this valuable information to them.

In the upcoming months, a lot of young people will be deciding where they’ll go to college. Others are figuring out how to finance the rest of their education. So, we have created a short list of available grants and scholarships to assist you.

My wife and I are the proud parents of two college graduates and we know first-hand how expensive college can be these days. That’s why we want you to have this valuable information.

The list below is not meant to be all-encompassing, nor is it endorsed by the State Senate. It is simply a helpful starting point. In fact, if you are aware of additional resources not included, please forward them to Senator.Anderson@senate.ca.gov and we will promptly add them to our list.

A word to the wise: these scholarships and grants have a wide range of eligibility requirements and deadline dates, so please be sure to read them thoroughly and act quickly. We have arranged them so that the ones with upcoming deadlines are at the top, but a number of the links included list multiple opportunities with deadlines that vary.

As always, it is an honor to serve you.

Joel

LAURIE EDWARDS-TATE, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF AT YOUR HOME FAMILYCARE, IS FEATURED IN CARING MAGAZINE IN “TOP CEOS SHARE THE SECRETS TO OPERATING A SUCCESSFUL HOSPICE, PRIVATE DUTY, AND COMPREHENSIVE HOME CARE COMPANY.”

CARING magazine, published by the National Association for Home Care and Hospice, located in Washington, D.C., requested Edwards-Tate’s perspectives and thoughts regarding her key to running a successful Private Duty organization.  As one of twenty-five Home Care CEO’s from across our Country, Edwards-Tate is one of seven representing the Private Duty sector.

According to Edwards-Tate: “Though I studied leadership theory in graduate school, the best education is real-world experience!  It is an honor, and I really mean honor, to be included with top home care CEO’s ‘who stand for the best in their field.’  And, to be included within the same publication as Warren Buffett, Jim Cafton, Paul Newman, Mother Teresa, and other noteables is amazing.  The bar has been raised higher for me, and there is tremendous encouragement and inspiration as a result.”
