BACKGROUND / OBJECTIVE:
The Rheumatoid Patient Foundation (RPF) is a 501c(3) non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of people with rheumatoid diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and juvenile arthritis. Beyond the physical, mental, and emotional hardship of rheumatoid disease (RD), there is also often a financial toll placed on people with RD due to the expenses of continuous care and treatment, as well as potential disability and loss of income. One of RPF’s primary goals is offering support to rheumatoid patients. One way in which we seek to do this is to offer support to students who have RD or whose parents have RD, as they pursue higher education or a career change. RPF’s scholarship program helps to support and meet the needs of these students.
To offer financial support to students whose lives have been affected by rheumatoid disease, as they advance their education.
The 2021 scholarship application is now closed.
