Posted Jan 19 2010 10:08pm

The Amputee Coalition of America (ACA) is now accepting applications for the second annual Christina Skoski, M.D., Scholarship until March 15, 2010. The fund will once again award a one-time, $1,000 scholarship to a student with limb loss who has a special desire to learn and exhibits potential for success. The scholarship is only open to undergraduate students who will be entering or who are already attending a 4-year college.

To be eligible for the scholarship, students must be amputees and have a minimum high-school grade-point average (GPA) of 3.5 and a minimum ACT score of 30 or SAT score of 1340. They must also submit a letter of recommendation from a high-school adviser. Additionally, the student or his or her parent/legal guardian must be a current member of the ACA. All majors are welcome.

Applications will only be accepted by online submission through the ACA Web site at amputee-coalition.org/scholarship. The application deadline for fall 2010 consideration is March 15, 2010. The scholarship recipient will be announced no later than May 31, 2010.
