When 180 Medical’s founder, Todd Brown, created the scholarship program, it was his hope to be able to help students and their families offset the costs of higher education in order to achieve their dreams despite the financial burden that their health conditions might create for them.
This program provides seven recipients with $1,000 scholarship awards in order to help them finance their college education.
Each student chosen must be a full-time student under a doctor’s care for a spinal cord injury, spina bifida, transverse myelitis, neurogenic bladder, or an ostomy (ileostomy, urostomy, or colostomy).

In 2017, 180 Medical received applications from hopeful students all over the United States, and as always, it was a difficult choice for the committee to begin narrowing down to the final seven recipients.
This year’s finalists have very different backgrounds and their career goals range from graphic designer to medical doctor, but one thing they all have in common in the desire to positively impact others’ lives.
Here are this year’s scholarship recipients:
180 Medical would like to thank everyone who applied. Every student who sent in their application were well-qualified and dedicated to their goals. Congratulations to the 2017 scholarship recipients. To those who did not receive an award this year, they are encouraged to watch for the announcement for the 2018 scholarship awards and apply again in the future.
