Abigail Short has dreamed of attending medical school since she was very young. Born prematurely, she needed the help of many nurturing neonatal intensive care doctors and nurses. They gave her outstanding care, which made it possible for Abigail to live a quality life.
“After that, I always wanted to help people the same way those nurses and doctors helped me,” Abigail said. Abigail is one of 31 students receiving a scholarship from The Foundation of Blended and Online Learning (FBOL), whose mission is to advance and improve the availability and quality of blended and online educational opportunities and to empower students through personalized learning.
Abigail accepted her scholarship at the FBOL Student Scholarship Gala on Thursday evening at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
