Vitality Medical’s Student Disability Scholarship program is designed to encourage and support outstanding students who work hard and want to make a significant impact on their school and community. You do not have to be disabled in order to apply or win. There are many currently non-disabled students at universities that assist other students who are disabled or have used a disability or mobility device during their life. Vitality Medical has been in business since the year 2000, offering mobility aids and medical supplies.
The VitalityMedical.com disability scholarship fund will bestow $500 to each winner.
