Griswold Home Care Annual Scholarship
Griswold Home Care is a mission-driven home care services company headquartered just outside of Philadelphia that celebrates, educates, and advocates the choice to remain independent at home. Griswold Home Care was founded by Jean Griswold in 1982 after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and seeing the need for quality care in her community. Jean’s mission of affordable care for all continues to spread today. In honor of Jean’s vision, Griswold Home Care offers three annual scholarships to qualified students pursuing a bachelor’s, associate’s, graduate, or professional degree at an accredited college or university. The first-place winner receives a $1,000 scholarship, and runners up receive $750 and $500 respectively. Please complete the form below by November 30th to submit your application for consideration.
We were pleased to announce Elaina Carkhuff as the winner of our Spring 2015 bi-annual scholarship contest! We surprised Elaina at work at the Mercy Life Center to celebrate her win and talk to her about her plans for her scholarship money. Take a look at her reaction in the video below.
Elaina has a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in nursing from Gwynedd Mercy College in Pennsylvania and is currently a registered nurse at Penn Medicine. In her application, she shared this thought: “Comfort comes from knowing a person is there unconditionally for you and is often better than modern medicine.” We agree, Elaina.
