The Numotion Foundation has established the Numotion Foundation Scholarship Fund in partnership with United Negro College Fund (UNCF) to primarily provide tuition and housing assistance for African American students living with mobility-related disabilities.
The Numotion Foundation has committed $20,000 for the next three years, for a total contribution of $60,000. Eligible applicants must have a grade point average of 2.75 or greater, provide UNCF with a letter of recommendation and statement of career interests, and can be in any stage of the process of pursuing a four-year at a qualifying institution.
UNCF will administer the scholarship program and provide distributions at its discretion.
“We greatly appreciate this donation to support physically challenged college students attend the college they want to go to,” said Dr. Michael L. Lomax, UNCF president and CEO. “Gifts like this one from the Numotion Foundation move all of us forward towards better futures for us all, and we thank the Foundation for investing in deserving, talented students who will help pay it forward for others.”
“Everyone should have the opportunity to pursue their interests and purpose through higher education,” said Mike Swinford, Numotion Foundation president and CEO of Numotion. “The Foundation is honored to partner with UNCF to help relieve the financial challenges to achieving a college degree and ensure deserving students have the support they need to be successful.”
This commitment is being made in addition to the more than $500,000 in charitable contributions to be distributed to nonprofit organizations focused on research, adaptive fitness and wellness, adaptive recreation, education, housing, transportation, and other mobility-related needs by the Numotion Foundation in 2020.
