AFA's Teens for Alzheimer's Awareness College Scholarship Essay Contest is an annual competition for college-bound high school seniors.

AFA's teen division was founded in 2002, by a teenager, to help educate and support teens whose lives have been impacted by Alzheimer's disease, as well as those who are interested in getting involved in the cause.

Today, as the incidence of Alzheimer's continues to rise in line with the growth of our aging population, an increasing number of teens are finding themselves in a care giving role. AFA Teens is here to help them navigate the challenges and triumphs that await.
