Scholarship Fund

Founded in 2011, the purpose of this scholarship is to aid students whose focus and interest is in the area of gerontology. The scholarship will be awarded based on grades and need for upper division/graduate students at PSU.  The selection process is overseen by the Financial Aids Office.

The Scholarship Committee also offers national and international tours as a fund raiser for the scholarship fund


The RAPS Scholarship Committee is working with a well known US tour company to sponsor group trips. A portion of the trip fee is donated to the scholarship fund. We will plan one group trip per year. These trips are open to all, not just to members. Presently we have 10 spaces on a trip to Italy leaving Portland on November 7, 2018. The hold on the 10 spaces is guaranteed only through April 30, 2018.

If you don't want to travel to Italy, you can still help the scholarship fund by planning your own destination. The tour company offers trips world wide. Contact the RAPS office to find out more on the "Group of One" option.
