Scholarships for Student Caregivers

As the population of older adults continues to grow and life spans lengthen, more and more young people are taking on the role of caregiver for older loved ones. While the exact number of young people taking on this responsibility is not well understood, it’s estimated to be well over 1 million.

On top of their demanding caregiving duties, many of these young people are simultaneously pursuing high school, college or graduate-level education. Scholarships for student-caregivers help ease the financial burden faced by these extremely hardworking students.

We understand that student caregivers may not have the time to scour the Internet to find available scholarships to help them pay for college. That’s why we’re handling some of that research by compiling and updating the below list to ensure they have access to the latest caregiver scholarships and information.



Scholarships for college-bound High School Students: Four scholarships for $2,500 each and ten scholarships for $2,000 each.

Scholarships for college-bound Foster Students:  Each scholarship is $2,000 and is renewable if the student continues to meet eligibility requirements.

All applications must be received no later than April 7, 2019.

Given the mission of FACO, high school applicants are expected to have participated in community service. Examples of community service include volunteering for Red Cross or local church; participating in Filipino-American student organizations; cleaning up the Bay or feeding the homeless; and any other qualifying activities.
