Through the generous sponsorship of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) AgeLab and AARP Massachusetts, the MIT AgeLab’s Opportunities for Multigenerational Exchange, Growth and Action (OMEGA) program is proud to offer five $5000 college scholarships to recognize the efforts that teens are making to create multigenerational connections. The OMEGA Scholarship is intended to amplify and support students' contributions to building initiatives, organizations and institutions that connect teens with older adults. Applicants must be current U.S. high school juniors or seniors who are serving in initiatives connecting high school students and older adults.
Each award will include a $5000 college scholarship to the winning student and $1000 to the winning student’s intergenerational initiative to support its activities. Both a completed application and a recommendation letter are required to apply for the scholarship. Application materials can be submitted via online form, email, or physical mail. Applications are due May 31st. Winners will be announced in August and will be invited to present their work at a virtual OMEGA scholarship awards reception, the date of which is to be determined.
