180 Medical Ron Howell Caregiver College Scholarship

caregiver and parent

180 Medical is proud to present a new caregiver scholarship opportunity for college students.

Whether providing assistance and in-home care for an aging parent or a disabled child or spouse, caregivers are the heart of the home. They often handle helping with daily activities such as bathing, grooming, eating, ordering medical supplies, offering transportation, and more.

At 180 Medical, we have a unique privilege to often speak one-on-one with caregivers. We understand and have witnessed firsthand the compassion and integrity that so many caregivers demonstrate in their daily tasks for their loved ones, despite the daily challenges and financial hardships that may sometimes go hand-in-hand with caregiving.

In honor of caregivers and their future career goals, 180 Medical created the Ron Howell Caregiver College Scholarship Award as a way to give back.


In order to be eligible to apply, students must be the primary unpaid caregiver for a family member or loved one with a chronic disability or medical condition requiring consistent in-home care. They must be planning to attend college in the United States as a legal resident for their Associate’s degree, undergraduate, or graduate degree in the fall of the year of application.

However, please take note that this scholarship is not available to students in medical school.

About Ron Howell

RonHowell CroppedBefore serving as President of 180 Medical, Ron led a long and rich career in the United States Air Force, where he learned and embraced core values of “integrity first, service before self, and excellence in all we do.” When Ron continued his career path as a civilian after retiring from the service, he found a perfect fit at 180 Medical where he served in leadership and sales roles over the nearly 15 years of his career here before taking over as President of 180 Medical in 2015.

Ron understands how important the role of a caregiver can be, and he feels that the values that have guided his life and career are central components to caregiving. That’s why we’ve created the Ron Howell Caregiver Scholarship in his name.
