Scholarships for rare disease patients

Patients living with a rare disease have to manage many unique challenges. Included in those is what happens to college and career plans during treatment. That’s why the EveryLife Foundation for Rare Diseases established the #RAREis Scholarship – a program that provides support for the educational pursuits of rare disease patients.

Under this program, The EveryLife Foundation for Rare Diseases plans to provide scholarship awards of $5,000 to up to 88 rare disease patients in 2024.

This scholarship program is open to anyone age 17 or older, who is a resident of the United States, and who has been diagnosed as having a rare disease, regardless of treatment status. Applicants must plan to enroll full-time or part-time in undergraduate or graduate study at an accredited 2 or 4-year college, university, or technical/trade school during the fall 2024 semester.

Applications must be received by April 22, 2024 at 2:00 PM ET. Click here for more information.
