Scholars in Aging Program
application deadline nears

        The Ohio Department of Aging (ODA), in conjunction with the Ohio Association of Gerontology and Education (OAGE), is accepting applications for the 2022-2023 Ohio Scholars in Aging program.
        For the past decade, ODA and OAGE have teamed up to offer the Ohio Scholars in Aging program for undergraduate and graduate students who are enrolled in an accredited educational institution in Ohio. Participants benefit from the opportunity to learn about aging-related policymaking, establish professional contacts, and gain career knowledge and skills in the field of aging by completing an internship or a community project, attending ODA and OAGE events, making a presentation for state leaders on aging, and more.
        The program stipend has been doubled this year. Participating students who complete all program requirements will each receive $2,000.
        “Seniors are the fastest-growing age group in Ohio. Now is the time to increase our engagement with our state’s best and brightest minds and allow them to use their skills and innovative ideas to help older Ohioans,” said ODA Director Ursel J. McElroy. “Ohio Scholars in Aging provides a unique opportunity for us to help shape tomorrow’s policymakers and leaders, while using their insights to help others.”
        The program is free and open to emerging professionals in a variety of careers. These can include students of nutrition and allied health sciences, city and regional planning, gerontology, social work, or other relevant focus areas.
        Ten students will be selected from the pool of applicants to participate in the program.
        Applications are due by Friday, Nov. 4.
        A survey of the students who participated in the Scholars in Aging program last year showed that 40% have already been hired to work in the aging network, while 80% said their involvement in the program influenced their career decision in some way. Additionally, 90% reported they were “highly satisfied” with their experience.
        Each participant must work on their internship or project for a total of at least 45 hours. In addition, participants must attend three ODA meetings, attend an all-day experience at their local Area Agency on Aging (AAA), and prepare a presentation for a Project Poster Session at the annual OAGE Conference.

        The C. Raymond Marvin Center for Student Leadership and Civic Engagement at Bowling Green State University has launched BGSUserves, a new platform for community organizations to find and manage volunteers for their events and initiatives.
        The free, comprehensive service will allow organizations to manage their own profiles and connect with more than 15,000 BGSU students for volunteer needs. Organizations will also be able to create volunteer events and opportunities, communicate with volunteers and manage volunteer participation all on one platform. Additionally, BGSUserves can be used for event and volunteer management with existing regional volunteers.
        “We are excited to announce this new initiative and grow its partnership with organizations in Bowling Green and Northwest Ohio,” said Kendra Lutes, assistant director of the Marvin Center for Student Leadership and Civic Engagement. “As part of this new initiative, we invite any interested community organizations to reach out for more information and to take advantage of this new opportunity.”
        BGSUserves is managed by BGSU and contracted with GivePulse, a national company known for its support of volunteer management and community services.
