In memory of Joey Wallace, Project Director of the RESNA Catalyst Project, RESNA has established the Joey Wallace Educational Scholarship Fund. This fund will provide grants to assistive technology professionals and students to participate in training and educational activities.
Joey was a passionate, committed mentor and educator of assistive technology professionals. He traveled the world providing training and tools for people working in the field on how to find funding, set up loan programs, and provide access to people with disabilities. As Project Director for the RESNA Catalyst Project, he worked closely with the federally-funded State Assistive Technology Programs (AT Act programs) and Alternative Financing Loan Programs (AFL).
Serving as a supporter of the first place prize for RESNA's Student Design Challenge which takes places yearly at the Annual Conference, the Joey Wallace Educational Scholarship Fund is proud to invest in the future of assistive technology professionals. The first place team receives a $1000 award in addition to a one-year RESNA membership and complimentary conference registration.
The 2022 Student Design Challenge first place winner is Shelbytron: an interactive robot to make pediatric physical therapy more fun.
