    hello family,

    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!
