The Myositis Association’s Virtual Summit is scheduled for May 22, 2021. This year’s virtual summit will enable myositis patients, caregivers, and myositis experts to come together globally to take action.

We know that despite the cost, some people living with a rare disease simply do not have the money and may have no other options, like using a credit card or borrowing from a friend. The financial impact of living with a rare disease can be devasting. We are here to help.
We offer this scholarship to make sure as many people as possible have the opportunity to attend by removing the financial barrier. Therefore, as in years past, we will award ten (10) scholarships to patients and caregivers who are living with any of the idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIM), generally referred to as myositis.
To apply you must be a resident of the U.S. and logged into your MSU free membership account.
Applications will be considered for myositis patients and caregivers who are unable to afford to attend. Applications will be accepted through April 12th and applicants will be notified soon after via email. All information you submit is confidential, and you will never be identified as getting assistance.
