    Default LUPUS scholarships?

    My mom told me to ask if anyone knows anything about LUPUS scholarships. I'm 15 right now and next year I'll be a Junior in high school so we're trying to find scholarships. If anyone knows anything that can help, please get in touch with me. Please and Thank you.

    There was a Lupus Scholarship that I found for a member last year, it was called the L.I.F.E. Scholarship. Google it to see if it is still active. I also think that the Lupus Foundation of America might have information about it. If not, let me know and I will do some research for you.
