To be considered for a scholarship, each student was required to submit an application, a letter of reference from O&P professionals, a transcript from their current or most recent academic semester, and a 2-page essay describing their reasons for entering the O&P profession as well as their thoughts on future of the O&P industry.
We would like to thank all of the students who applied and after reading through many compelling and captivating essays, it's safe to say the future of prosthetics and orthotics is bright. We're proud to be partnering with these future leaders and look forward to seeing their influence on the O&P industry.
