Beyond Access for Mobility
Laurie's Scholars is in the service of changing and shaping the way communities consider equality for professionals with mobility-related disabilities. Through the work of Free Wheelchair Mission (FWM), select Partners will refer potential scholarship candidates to us. Based on their goals and acceptance into a university or trade related school, we will provide funds for them to fulfill their educational journey.
