The L.I.F.E. Scholarship Committee is pleased to announce our inspirational finalists for consideration of the 2018 L.I.F.E. Scholarship Award. Being selected as a finalist is a considerable honor as the competition is at an all-time high. Thank you to all of our applicants for sharing your story and for continuing to persevere despite the setbacks of lupus.
The final selection of winners will be contacted by telephone in August/September by a member of the L.I.F.E Scholarship Committee. The 2018 Finalists may be interviewed for a variety of reasons to clarify a section of their application or if the Team or Committee has a sponsored L.I.F.E. Scholarship for a Finalist, but they also qualify for an optional—and additional—special award, like a Social Media-based Scholarship. Or a L.I.F.E. Awareness Award, which is another special award given to a L.I.F.E. Scholarship winner in a state not represented by Our organization yet. This shows our donors and sponsors that we continue to go above and beyond to further our mission to spread lupus awareness and award merit-based L.I.F.E. Scholarships to courageous college students overcoming the setbacks of lupus across this country. And the L.I.F.E. Team will persevere through their own struggles and adversity to award scholarships in every state.
The L.I.F.E. Scholarship Committee encourages all applicants who did not receive a scholarship to re-apply next year.
