I got word about a scholarship this weekend so I wanted to share some more of the details with the readers and anyone who is surfing in from the search engines.
This scholarship is for students who use wheelchairs – manual or electric – and its sponsored by AmeriGlide, a supplier and distributor of all sorts of home mobility products like ramps, stairlifts, and other types of wheelchair lifts.
Full information about the wheelchair scholarship program (click here)
Applications are due on January 2, 2009 and can be completed online or downloaded, filled out, and mailed in. Students applying must also complete a 500 word essay explained at the scholarship information page.
Winners are announced in March of 2009, but you can start applying now in 2008 (in fact, you’ll need to get working on it if you’re eligible because you’ve really just got November and December left to work on it!)
Thanks to Ameriglide for running such a great scholarship program, and I’d also like to thank them for bringing it to my attention so I can pass the word along. If you have any questions, please check out the links provided here.
Oh, and good luck!
