We’re proud to announce the 2017 scholarship recipients of our annual 180 Medical College Scholarship program.
180 Medical Announces 2017 Scholarship Recipients
When 180 Medical’s founder, Todd Brown, created the scholarship program, he hoped to help students 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 college students with $1,000 scholarship awards to help them finance their 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).
This year’s finalists have very different backgrounds. Plus, their career goals range from graphic designer to medical doctor. However, one thing they all have in common is a desire to touch others’ lives.
Here are this year’s winners:
- Frank Damiani
- Chelsea Fisk
- Elizabeth Flora-Swick
- Megha Kalyan
- Heidi Martin-Coleman
- Grant Rustin
- Joseph Stokes
Congratulations to the 2017 scholarship recipients!
180 Medical would like to thank everyone who applied this year. We also encourage students to reapply in the future and keep an eye out for the upcoming 2018 scholarship program.
