The 180 Medical Scholarship Program is open to full-time college students living with specific medical conditions, including spinal cord injuries, spina bifida, transverse myelitis, neurological bladder, or an ostomy. Understanding that these conditions often come with additional financial challenges, our program seeks to give back and invest in the future of students who have faced adversity and create a positive impact on others through their career goals. We offer seven $1,000 college scholarships annually to seven recipients.
In order to be eligible, applicants must be legal U.S. residents and be accepted to a two-year, four-year, or graduate school program full-time in the year of application. Applicants must also be under a physician’s care for one of the following conditions: spinal cord injury, spina bifida, transverse myelitis, neurogenic bladder, or an ostomy (ileostomy, colostomy, and/or urostomy). The annual application period is from January 1st to June 1st and applications must be postmarked on or before June 1st. Each year, scholarship recipients are announced in August.
