hello family,

does anyone know of any scholarships out there for people with Lupus or a disability? I will be entering my last semester of grad school but our money is really low right now but I would like to continue and graduate. thanks in advance.

Gosh - I have thought about this before. I'm hoping someday to be in a position to start a scholarship (even a small one) at a local university to help those with lupus to finish school.

I don't know of any currently, though.

what are you studying?

I hope to give back one day as well because during my undergrad I received some scholarships that made a real difference because at the time I was a single parent.

I am pursuing my MA in Juvenile Justice, I have a BS in Criminal Justice.

These are the only two that I've ever heard of. You can also check the Arthrits Foundation's website.

Good to know, Saysusie!

On a side note, I have a BA in Criminal Justice, too!
