The Rose Kleiner Memorial Award in Gerontology

About the Kleiner Fellowship

The Rose Kleiner Memorial Award in Gerontology was established with a gift from the Kleiner Family Foundation. Kleiner Awards provide fellowship support for MSW students pursuing careers in social work with older adults. The annual award amount is currently $5,000.

Rose Kleiner received her MSW from UC Berkeley at age 50 with a speciality in gerontology. In 1982, she founded Older Adults Care Management, a private agency that offers an alternative to institutionalization through consultation, counseling, and home care services.
