Additional Information:

At Boomer Benefits, our mission is to help older Americans with securing suitable supplemental insurance as they prepare to enter a new phase in their lives. Our clients are mostly Baby Boomers, and we absolutely love working with this generation of great Americans. It's a natural fit then to support adult students with our philanthropic endeavors.

We designed the Boomer Benefits Scholarship to recognize and empower students who have returned to school later in life to better themselves, advance their current career path or pursue a new career.

As an agency that earns its revenue by helping people with Medicare insurance, we believe in supporting and empowering older Americans. We are especially interested in helping a mature student who has demonstrated a willingness to give back to their community via service to others, especially older Americans and the elderly. With more than 10,000 people aging into Medicare every single day, the need for community service to groups of older Americans has never been greater.

Award will be based on applicant's GPA, amount and nature of his or her community service, and the strength of letters of recommendation submitted. Applicants will provide:

  • Application
  • Letter of Recommendation from a professor you've had in the last 2 years, or the Facilitator of a verifiable community service organization
  • Transcript
  • Letter from applicant describing 1) current career goals and how this education will help will help to achieve those goals and 2) community service history and what it has meant to them
  • Priority will be given to applicants who demonstrate a passion for service to others - particularly older Americans, and a seriousness of purpose and sound character
