The scholarship is to be awarded to individuals with a 
Permanent Mobility Disability

Mobility impairment refers to the inability of a person to use one or more of his/her extremities, or a lack of strength to walk, grasp, or lift objects. The use of a wheelchair, crutches, or a walker may be utilized to aid in mobility. Mobility impairment may be caused by a number of factors, such as disease, an accident, or a congenital disorder and may be the result from neuro-muscular and orthopedic impairments.

The scholarship will be open to any student attending college/vocational school

We will follow a standard application process for student scholarships with a specific essay topic that will be a minimum of 3 pages and an integral part of the selection process.
“What does it mean to you to be part of both the LGBT and Disabled communities?”


This Scholarship will be under the non profit organization of The Imperial Court de San Diego. Since its inception in 1979, the scholarship program has given over $185,000. http://www.imperialcourtsandiego.com/About/Programs.aspx

If you would prefer to donate directly to the Imperial Court as a tax deductible donation checks can be made out to The Imperial Court of San Diego  (note on check for Doug's scholarship)

I just wanted to say Thank you to everyone once again. I have raised the limit to this fund to $10,000 so it will remain an active page.

Feel free to share the link or donate anytime you think of Doug.
The more money we raise, the more people we can positively impact.

Kurt
