180 Medical recently announced the winners of our two annual college scholarship programs, including the 180 Medical College Scholarship and the 180 Medical Ron Howell Caregiver College Scholarship. Meet our 2021 180 Medical Scholarship recipients and learn more about what we do.
About 180 Medical Scholarship Opportunities
Each year, from January 1st to June 1st, 180 Medical accepts applications from eligible college students across the United States. You can find out more about our annual scholarship opportunities below.
180 Medical College Scholarship Program
The 180 Medical College Scholarship Program, which was originally created in 2012, is offered to college students with specific medical conditions including spinal cord injury, spina bifida, transverse myelitis, neurogenic bladder, and/or an ostomy (ileostomy, urostomy, or colostomy).
Since 2012, 180 Medical has awarded over 60 scholarships to students who’ve experienced challenges due to their conditions that have made paying for college and achieving their goals more difficult.
180 Medical Ron Howell Caregiver Scholarship Program
In addition to the 180 Medical College Scholarship Program, the 180 Medical Ron Howell Caregiver College Scholarship was created in 2020 to honor former 180 Medical President Ron Howell upon his retirement. This scholarship program aims to help college students who are unpaid caregivers to a loved one living with a chronic disability.
Because 180 Medical understands that these students often face limited financial resources and time, they created this scholarship program to aid these selfless caregivers in pursuit of their career dreams.
Announcing the 2021 180 Medical Scholarship Recipients
In 2021, 180 Medical received applications from hopeful students all over the United States. As always, it was a difficult choice for the judging committee to narrow down the finalists.
The 2021 180 Medical Scholarship recipients may come from different backgrounds with varying career goals and college majors. However, they share one thing in common: their hope to create a brighter future and positively impact others’ lives.
