2023 OMEGA Scholarship

Through the generous sponsorship of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) AgeLab and AARP Massachusetts, the MIT AgeLab’s Opportunities for Multigenerational Exchange, Growth and Action (OMEGA) program is proud to offer five $5000 college scholarships to recognize the efforts that teens are making to create multigenerational connections.

High school juniors and seniors in the U.S. are eligible to apply. Each award will include a $5000 college scholarship to the winning student and $1000 to the winning student’s intergenerational initiative to support its activities. The OMEGA Scholarship is intended to amplify and support students' contributions to building initiatives, organizations and institutions that connect teens with older adults.

Applications are due May 31, 2023. Winners will be announced in August 2023 and will be invited to present their work at a virtual OMEGA scholarship awards reception, the date of which is to be determined.

Both a completed application and a recommendation letter are required to apply for the scholarship.
