Scholarships for Adults 50 or Over

Going back to school as a mature adult is difficult. Balancing current financial obligations along with the extra time and cost of school is no easy task.  

A recent survey has shown that 60 percent of adults aged 23-55 are considering going back to education, but financial liabilities, such as student loan debt and other education-related expenses, are the main obstacles that hold them back.

Still, just like any other student, you are eligible to apply for financial aid to help you pursue your undergraduate degree. 

Returning to school is a great way to boost your career and increase your future earning potential, but it also means that your current income takes a hit. By applying for the Medigap Seminars Scholarship for mature students, it’s possible to reduce education costs, save money and earn a degree in less time.

Medigap Seminars Scholarship for Adult Students

Scholarship for Adults Over 50
Matthew & Meri Claassen

Medigap Seminars  offers scholarships for adult students over 50 who return to school to complete their degrees. As we’re involved in helping people with Medicare, we appreciate anyone who contributes to enhancing the well-being of our senior demographic representatives.

At Medigap Seminars, our goal is to help Americans 65 and older, as well as those who are younger and disabled secure a supplemental insurance plan to ensure they are prepared for the next stage in their lives. We build close relationships with our clients and want to support them in any endeavors and ventures.

That’s why we designed our Medigap Scholarship program to recognize and empower adult students over 50 who decided to go back to school to continue with their education journey, whether it’s advancing their current career path or pursuing a new career.

As Medicare insurance experts, we particularly appreciate students who demonstrate genuine willingness to be of service to the elderly and give back to the community via supporting older demographic groups in their daily lives.
