Ron Howell Caregiver College Scholarship from 180 Medical

180 Medical is proud to present a caregiver scholarship opportunity for college students. We often speak with caregivers and witness the compassionate care they demonstrate despite the challenges and financial hardships that sometimes go hand-in-hand with caregiving. In honor of caregivers, 180 Medical created the Ron Howell Caregiver College Scholarship Award as a way to give back.

How to Apply for the 180 Medical Caregiver Scholarship

The annual 180 Medical caregiver scholarship application period is from January 1 to June 1 each calendar year. We announce the recipients of each year’s scholarship in August.


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 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.

Please note: paid caregiving professionals (nurses, nursing home workers, etc.) or students currently in medical school are ineligible to apply.
