Scholarships seniors - there is money out there for seniors who wish to earn a degree some of you did not have the opportunity to get a college or graduate degree when you were younger. Others never developed a real interest in learning until they reached mid-life or later. But finding 60 year old, those in their seventies and eighties in college class rooms is no longer so unusual.
Fact is teachers will often say that having some older students in class benefits the whole class. Elders are serious about their studies and once they get past any initial shyness, they make valuable contributions to discussions and ask useful questions that many of the younger students just do not raise at all.

More than one person approaching retirement has chosen the place of their retirement because of the educational benefits available to instate residents.
