Services for Students with Disabilities


Craig H. Neilsen Foundation Scholarship

The Craig H. Neilsen Foundation “was established in 2002 as a private foundation dedicated to spinal cord injury (SCI) research and quality of life programs for people living with SCI. Mr. Neilsen lived with a high-level spinal cord injury for twenty-one years until his passing in 2006. He was a visionary with an entrepreneurial spirit who led his companies with inexhaustible passion. Craig Neilsen wanted his foundation to contribute in a significant way to SCI research and to offer those with SCI the quality of life they deserve.” As a recipient of the Craig H. Neilsen Scholarship Program, his vision can hopefully continue through you in its dedication for individuals with spinal cord injuries to live full and productive lives as active participants in their communities.”
