At JustWalkers.com, we understand how limited mobility can be a major challenge in an academic setting. That’s why we’re proud to offer the $1,000 JustWalkers.com Mobility Scholarship—open to all college students with limited mobility who use a wheelchair, power scooter, crutches, rollator or other mobility device on a regular basis.
To enter, students write a 600 word maximum essay on the following prompt:
Describe a time when you faced a major obstacle. What did you do and what did the experience teach you?
Essays will be read by a committee and the winner selected based on merit and creative storytelling. The winning essay will be published here on July 31 along with the winner’s name and photo. Funds will be sent directly to the winner’s college/university to be used toward their tuition.
College freshman, sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students.
Must have a minimum 3.0 GPA.
