African American

There are more than 80 different known autoimmune diseases affecting more than 24 million people in the U.S. alone.

These diseases can be life-threatening and/or lifelong illnesses affecting bodily function. Having an autoimmune disease and dealing with its effects can make it difficult for those afflicted to focus on other tasks like pursuing college, especially for BIPOC individuals who systemically receive poorer medical care. 

This scholarship seeks to support African American female students who have autoimmune diseases and are pursuing higher education.

Any female African American undergraduate or graduate student with at least a 3.0 GPA who’s pursuing STEM, healthcare, public health, or medicine may apply for this scholarship if she has been diagnosed with a systemic autoimmune disease.

To apply, tell us how your autoimmune disease affects your life, education, and future goals and how this scholarship would help you reach your goals.
