I have been volunteering at the old age facility at a hospital and I have met with multiple patients suffering from this heart breaking disease. I just moved to America from Dubai less than 7 months ago and I plan to pursue a Biology course to gain a Physician Assistant masters

I work in an Alzheimer's care facility as a way to pay my way through cosmetology school. I was excited to first see this scholarship because everyday I see first hand the devastation of this tragic disease. I was then horribly disappointed to discover that only 4 year college students are eligible. Many teens and young adults are affected by this disease and want to better their circumstance through education that is not a 4 year program.
