Academy For Lifetime Learning Offering College Scholarship

Posted: Updated:

VIRGINIA - Some people spend their lives in a complacency, while others take full advantage of challenging opportunities.

"Life is an adventure. Everyday you should have an adventure, and a lot of it is about learning something new, even if it's the smallest thing," said instructor and student, Anthony Picardi.

The Academy for Lifetime Learning in Virginia built their foundation, based on that idea. For six years, they've been offering about 20 to 30 courses to mostly older adults, but really anyone interested in taking on a new hobby.

"We have courses on anything from cooking, to exercise, to nature study. People who have interests in hobbies; some of them professional interests, some are just hobbies that we picked up, we share them with other people," said Picardi.

They get full access to all classes, for just $20 a year. That small fee, accumulated over time, and is now being dispersed into two $1,000 scholarships for students looking to embark on a 4-year journey through higher learning.

"The scholarship is for students intending to go into the field of STEM, that's science, technology, engineering, math and medicine," said Picardi.

The student must also live on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, and write a compelling essay. The deadline for this scholarship is April 30th. You can find details on essay topics and more by clicking on the DEF logo on our homepage.
