WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 26, 2020) – Capitol Seniors Housing, a leading senior living investment and development firm, announced plans to triple the number of college scholarships it plans to award in 2020. The firm’s Seniors2 program aspires to award 25 $1,500 scholarships to college-bound high school seniors who demonstrated active, consistent and dedicated involvement with senior adults in communities where the firm owns senior living properties.
“We created Seniors2 to recognize, award, and honor high school seniors who volunteer their time and energy at senior living communities across the country. We’re very proud of these young people and are pleased to recognize their meaningful contributions,” said Scott Stewart, Managing Partner of Capitol Seniors Housing. “Our firm’s goal, from a development perspective, is to create quality senior living communities with state-of-the-art amenities designed to help foster engagement, including these wonderful generation-to-generation interactions. Our scholars’ experiences enrich the lives of senior adults and provide exposure to opportunities and careers in the senior housing industry.”
The mission of Seniors2 is to award scholarships to college-bound high school seniors who have demonstrated active, consistent, and dedicated involvement in their local senior housing communities. By connecting high school seniors with senior citizens, Seniors2 enriches the development of students and engrains values of volunteerism, while providing senior citizens with a rewarding link to the community.
“Seniors2 hopes to inspire collaboration and the sharing of knowledge between both ‘senior classes,’ which we believe strengthens the ties that bind all of us together,” said Stewart.
