Jerry Florence Scholarship

10 Scholarships Available for National Aging and Law Institute

The AARP Foundation is awarding 10 AARP Foundation Litigation Jerry D. Florence Scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each to pay for registration and the cost of travel expenses to attend the 2011 National Aging and Law Institute. Scholarship recipients are responsible for all additional travel costs in excess of the scholarship amount. AARP Foundation Litigation established this scholarship fund in the name of Jerry D. Florence, who served as the Director of the AARP Foundation for two years before dying suddenly at the age of 57 on November 28, 2005. Mr. Florence was a leader who was quickly able to envision how a new idea could transform the lives of AARP's members. He delighted in finding ways to help others, while his energy, positive attitude, and easy smile touched many hearts. AARP Foundation Litigation is proud to continue the memory of this visionary through scholarships for advocates at this conference.

Consideration will be given to all applicants for the AARP Foundation Litigation Jerry D. Florence Scholarships; however, priority will be given to applicants who:

  • Have not previously attended the National Aging and Law Conference or NAELA's Advanced Fall Institute
  • Demonstrate financial need
  • Provide legal services or advocacy to older persons
