College-Bound Graduating Seniors are Encouraged to Apply
Now in its 5th year, Claremont Place Senior Living is pleased to once again offer the opportunity for college-bound, graduating seniors to apply for a Claremont Place “Senior to Senior” Legacy Scholarship. Over the past four years, 20 Claremont area young adults have benefited from this scholarship opportunity.
Claremont Place is awarding five $1,000 scholarships. Applications are due by April 17 at 5:00 p.m., delivered to Claremont Place Senior Living, 120 West San Jose Avenue, Claremont CA 91709. Winners will be honored at an awards presentation on May 11, 2017 at 6:30pm.
By offering the Claremont Place “Senior to Senior” Legacy Scholarships, the residents are able to fulfill their mission to encourage, support, educate, and develop this generation as they move into adulthood. Claremont Place is an independent, assisted, and memory care community for seniors that strive to “Experience moments. Experience life.” In giving to others on an intergenerational level, they are attempting to pass on the opportunity for young people in our greater community to also “experience”!
Claremont Place is seeking seniors of Claremont High School and San Antonio High School only. The applicant will have a verified 3.0 GPA and will have applied for Fall 2016 admission to a college or university with the intention of obtaining a degree. In addition, the Resident Scholarship Committee would like to hear from the applicant in a 1-2 page essay about their reason for pursuing higher education along with a personal account of how a senior has affected their life, including specific examples of intergenerational experiences of the applicant.
