    Ashleybaby,

    What a great thing to ask about. If there aren't any out there, there should be.

    This is the only Lupus scholarship that I've ever been able to find. Apparently, right now, they are not issuing scholarships. But, you can keep checking the site for updates:

    I am so happy you asked! I have had to take the semester off due to money issues with us not having jobs. I thought of looking for one so I could finish! I am supposed to graduate in April but it looks like it will be a bit longer now I am not giving up yet and I will graduate even if it takes me an extra year!!!!!!!!
    As I grow to understand life less and less,
    I learn to love it more and more.

    Medications: Methotrexate, Lyrica, Celebrex, Flexeril, Theophylline, Bactrim, Xopenex, Lisinopril, Ultram

    Well I really thought I posted this already and now I looked and no I didn't sorry for the fog Also try this site http://www.scholarshipworkshop.com/disabled.html

    A"disability" under the ADA is an impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. An individual must be unable to perform, or be significantly limited in the ability to perform, an activity compared to an average person in the general population. I feel you qualify for these type of scholarships and if they do have stricter standards than the ADA it never hurts to try. Good luck with your sholarships

    I was looking for scholorships too. Now I'm enrolled in college and it's completely paid for by my other scholarships. I haven't found any, but I hope you can. Good luck.
