The Chastity Corbett Youth Scholarship

Chastity Corbett Youth Scholarship
 

Social Butterflies Foundation was founded by lupus survivor, Chastity Corbett.  It is a grassroots organization dedicated to helping those battling with lupus and fibromyalgia, as well as their families and caregivers. Our mission is to provide education, support services, and encouragement to empower and uplift those living with lupus and fibromyalgia in effort to help them and their families face the challenges of these debilitating illnesses. Our vision is to make these invisible illnesses visible. 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. The Chastity Corbett Youth Scholarship is for graduating seniors who reside in and attend school in the Hampton Roads region. Applicants must attend an accredited college, university or post-secondary institution in pursuit of a degree within one year of graduation. Applicants must have at least a 3.0 cumulative Grade Point Average on a 4.0 scale in order to qualify for a scholarship award.

 

Social Butterflies Foundation established the Chastity Corbett Youth Scholarship in recognition of the dedication and fortitude of its founder. Chastity works tirelessly and humbly despite her health challenges and any obstacles before her to help fellow survivors and their families. She started and facilitate the support groups, spearheads all the awareness events year-round to advocate for lupus and fibromyalgia awareness. She is a true agent of change and champion for the community. Chastity is affectionately known as “The Lupus Conqueror”. However, she is more than a conqueror, and she ensures that all survivors know that they are too. She created the phrase “Butterflies don’t let each other fly alone”, and she is determined to live up to that mantra.

 

Chastity is a child of God, wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. She wears many hats, but she is dedicated to making these invisible illnesses visible.

 

This scholarship is to encourage lupus / 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.  Please direct any questions to scholarship@socialbutterfliesfoundation.org
