2020 Scholarship Opportunities

Social Butterflies Foundation aims to provide youth battling with lupus and/or fibromyalgia, as well as children of survivors, with college scholarship opportunities to help fulfill their aspirations.  To that end, we have established the Chastity Corbett Youth Scholarship and the Courtney Blair Youth Scholarship.

These scholarship opportunities are to encourage lupus and/or fibromyalgia patients or students of patients who have these auto immune diseases to remember that “lupus and fibromyalgia are words not sentences”. Do not let them hold you back nor hinder you from chasing and achieving your aspirations. You can do anything that you set your mind to doing.
