Ohio Scholars in Aging Program

The Ohio Department of Aging (ODA) has partnered with the Ohio Association of Gerontology and Education (OAGE) to create the Ohio Scholars in Aging program.

The program 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 2018 Ohio Scholars in Aging Program are now open. Application deadline has been extended to December 8, 2017.
