The Life Scholarship for Lupus as offered by the Lupus Inspiration Foundation for Excellence provides financial assistance to those students with disabilities.
If you have been diagnosed with Lupus and want to attend college there are few Lupus scholarships for disabled students available for those with Lupus.
The Lupus Alliance of American, Upstate New York Affiliate offers the Cheryl Malke Memorial Scholarship Award. You must have Lupus, or be the child of someone who has Lupus in order to be eligible. Furthermore, this Lupus scholarship is primarily for graduate students, or those who have at least completed two years of undergraduate study. There are other eligibility requirements as well, but not a great deal of information can be gleaned from the website at www.lupusupstateny.org. Instead, you will have to call the organization at 800-300-4198.
Another scholarship for people with Lupus is the Latreese Fagan Memorial Scholarship. The amount of this award varies depending on the donations received by the scholarship fund, and the scholarship is not renewable. You must be a United Citizen, be a diagnosed Lupus Patient, and be a resident of Michigan and planning to attend a Michigan school. To learn more about the eligibility requirements for this scholarship for disabled, or to apply, you can visit scholarships for people with Lupus.
As you can see, there really are few options for Lupus Scholarships, but you should also take advantage of any other scholarships for disabilities in general as well, as opposed to those that are only available for specific medical conditions.
