1800 Wheelchair.com Scholarship

Established in 2006, the 1800wheelchair scholarship now awards two $500 scholarships each year. For this scholarship period, we are going to repeat our visual contest. Please submit a 'visual poem', in a style of your choosing, on the theme of overcoming a personal challenge. Limit your 'visual poem' to an 8.5in x 11in piece of paper. You can choose to represent words, images, or both. It can abstract or representational. Please include a personal statement that gives us an idea of who you are and how your poem relates to a challenge you've faced. The poem and essay (combined) should be between 500 and 1,000 words, but feel free to write a little more or less. Enrolled at an accredited high school, college, or university in the U.S. Enrolled at the undergraduate level or your final year of high school. Age sixteen (16) years or older. Carry a status of “Good Standing” - i.e. currently enrolled. Maintain a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 3.0 (or equivalent).
