Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (PRWEB) January 06, 2012
The catheter and urological supply company 180 Medical Inc. is thrilled to announce a scholarship for college students with spinal cord injury, spina bifida, and transverse myelitis. This scholarship will give $1,000 each to three students that demonstrate triumph over their circumstances.
Starting January 1, 2012, students planning to attend a two- to four-year college in the coming fall for at least 12 credit hours may apply for 180 Medical’s one-time scholarship. Realizing the financial hardship that many people with spinal conditions face, 180 Medical hopes that their scholarship will be helpful to those truly dedicated to furthering their educations.
The founder of 180 Medical, Todd Brown, has had his share of the difficulties that disabilities present. When he was paralyzed from the chest down, one of Brown’s biggest challenges was the near-constant UTIs. His victory resides in not only being able to eliminate most infections and live a healthier life, but in creating a company that provides people like him with the same options. This scholarship takes that goal even further.
With this scholarship, those optimistic students that prove they are dedicated to furthering their education and enthusiastic about making a positive impact on the world can be given a reward that will help them to achieve their dreams.
To qualify, students must be high school seniors or graduates that have been accepted into college or returning college freshmen, sophomores, or juniors. Applicants must also be diagnosed with transverse myelitis, spina bifida, or a spinal cord injury by a doctor in writing. The deadline for applications is June 1, 2012.
