The Ohio Department of Aging and the Ohio Association of Gerontology and Education (OAGE) are preparing to kick off the Winter/Spring 2016 session of the Ohio Scholars in Aging program. The program is a partnership between the state's aging network and colleges and universities that cultivates future decision-makers and designers of aging services in Ohio, while ensuring that Ohio communities and businesses design and implement solutions that address the issues, opportunities and impact of an aging population.
Ohio Scholars in Aging is for students who are enrolled in an internship or practicum (including clinicals and practicals) that involves older adults or their caregivers. The program links students' hands-on experience to aging-related policy at the state level. The program provides scholars of all academic backgrounds with the opportunity to learn about and contribute to aging-related policy-making, establish career-long professional contacts and gain valuable career knowledge and skills in the field of aging.
Applications for the Winter/Spring 2016 session will be accepted through Dec. 18, 2015. Learn more and access the online application.
