International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    I would like to go back to school, but I don't have money to pay for it. In the field I'm interested in it's common for schools to offer assistantships with tuition wavers and stipends, but they're only for full time students. I don't think I have the energy to go full time. Does anyone know if there are any scholarships to fund education for people with disabilities, maybe specifically CFS patients? Or where to look to find out about them if they exist? So far I haven't found anything.

    Thanks.

    It probably varies a lot depending on which country you're in.

    Yes, some countries will waive tuition if you are on full disability.
