  • Scholarship Description
  • OMEGA was created by the MIT AgeLab to support the development and growth of student programs and clubs that connect high school students with older adults. The goal of OMEGA is to strengthen relationships and promote connections across generations. OMEGA convenes several student summits each year in an effort to encourage students to connect across generations, brainstorm and share programming ideas, and plan intergenerational activities. The next workshop will be held in the upcoming spring.

    Through the generous sponsorship of the MIT AgeLab and the New England University Transportation Center, OMEGA is proud to offer three (3) new $1,000 college scholarships to recognize and reward the efforts that young adults are making to create multigenerational connections. High school juniors and seniors living in one of the six New England states (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont) are eligible to apply for scholarships. Each OMEGA scholarship will award a $1000 college scholarship to the winning student and $1,000 to the winning student’s high school organization to support its activities to build relationships between teens and older adults. Three separate scholarships are available; one OMEGA scholarship will be awarded in each of the following categories: Transportation and Community; Technology; and Social Connectivity. The presentation of awards will take place at a ceremony at MIT in the spring.
