OKLAHOMA CITY (PRWEB) September 24, 2020
180 Medical, one of America’s leading providers of intermittent catheters, ostomy supplies, and incontinence products, is pleased to announce this year’s recipients of the annual 180 Medical College Scholarship.
When 180 Medical’s founder, Todd Brown, created the scholarship program, it was his hope to be able to help young students and their families offset the costs of higher education in order to achieve their dreams despite the financial burden that their health conditions might create for them.
This program provides seven recipients with $1,000 scholarship awards each year in order to help them finance their college education. Each student chosen must be a full-time student and under a doctor’s care for a spinal cord injury, spina bifida, transverse myelitis, neurogenic bladder, or an ostomy (ileostomy, urostomy, or colostomy). Those interested can learn more about the scholarship program at http://www.180medical.com/scholarships.
“180 Medical takes tremendous pride in supporting the educational pursuits of our awardees. The candidates we review each year continue to raise the bar. We are inspired and energized by these applicants, especially when overlaying the complexities of managing their own condition,” said Seth Segel, President of 180 Medical.
In 2020, 180 Medical received applications from hopeful students all over the United States, and as always, it was a difficult choice for the committee to begin narrowing down to the final seven recipients. While each one of our recipients come from different backgrounds and have different career goals, they all are looking to create a brighter future for themselves and their families.
The seven finalists who have received the $1,000 scholarship award are:
- Alexander Coleman (Purdue University)
- Brandon Staple (University of Colorado – Denver)
- Heidi Pearson (Boise State University)
- Lillian Droscha (Hope College)
- Matthew Schultz (University of Nebraska – Omaha)
- Reo Hayashizaki (University of Oklahoma)
- Tashiana Scott-Cochran (North Carolina Central University)
180 Medical would like to thank everyone who applied. All applicants are encouraged to apply again in 2021. Congratulations to the 2020 180 Medical College Scholarship recipients!
