The Jennifer Baker Memorial Scholarship was established in 2022 by the REquipment, Inc. Board of Directors to honor former Program Director Jennifer Baker. Baker died unexpectedly in January 2022 and was an Assistive Technology (AT) Professional who prized lifelong learning.
The scholarship supports a student pursuing a career related to assistive technology and durable medical equipment who values reuse to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities and older adults. The successful candidate will be enrolled in a degree or certificate program in occupational therapy, physical therapy, adaptive technology, or a similar field. Applicants residing in Massachusetts or Connecticut will be given preference, as that is where Jennifer Baker lived and worked.
