Lupus Inspiration Foundation for Excellence (L.I.F.E.) is excited to announce its new annual scholarship program! In recognition of Lupus Awareness Month, L.I.F.E. will be sponsoring at least one scholarship every May known as the L.I.F.E. Awareness Awards. This new program was created to promote awareness, and to reach our goal of representing all 50 states by awarding scholarships to students in states that have not yet been awarded.
The following scholarships will be awarded in May 2015:
On World Lupus Day, May 10th, a sponsored scholarship will be awarded to a 2015 scholarship applicant.
Put on Purple Day, May 15th, a sponsored scholarship will be awarded to a 2014 Finalist. This means YOU! The demand for our scholarships has increased, and we've had so many amazing applicants. In an effort to recognize all of our amazing scholarship finalists, we will be awarding a scholarship to a former finalist, just so you understand how truly wonderful you are. Please note, 2014 Finalists do not need to apply to be considered for the 2015 L.I.F.E. Awareness Award, however, we encourage all of our former finalists to reapply for the upcoming L.I.F.E. Scholarship deadline (July 1st, 2015) if they have not done so already.
There is no application procedure for these scholarships. To be eligible for this scholarship, students must fulfill all requirements listed on our website here and the student(s) must be from either a state not yet awarded a scholarship, or in a lesser represented state. If chosen for this award, students must be willing to share their story.
Best of luck!
