Rose Kleiner Memorial Fellowship in Gerontology

The Rose Kleiner Memorial Award in Gerontology was established with a gift from the Kleiner Family Foundation. 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.

The Kleiner Memorial Award provides support for MSW students pursuing careers in social work with older adults.
