Assisted Living Options Hawaii (ALOH) has carried out a number of important projects in the housing area since its founding. In 2009 ALOH determined that it no longer wished to continue its activities, and decided to turn almost all of its remaining funds ($16,000) over to the Hawaii Pacific Gerontological Society to use for scholarship purposes. The new scholarship program has several components, which are summarized below:
(1) up to $4,000 of the scholarship funds will be used each year
(2) The HPGS scholarship committee will use these funds for three purposes: (a) $1,000 will go for an additional scholarship to a community college or undergraduate student at a public or private institution in Hawaii who is focused on helping the elderly population;
The HPGS Scholarship Committee uses its existing guidelines for selecting the undergraduate or community college student. Guidelines and application forms for the graduate scholarship and the community practitioner award will be available by Summer 2010.
