­Scholarships for Asthma

Asthma, a long-term respiratory condition which results in wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and coughing can make it very difficult for a student to focus on school, while fighting this medical condition and trying to come up with money to pay for tuition and books.  The medical condition may also make it difficult for student to get a job which can pay for his/her college.  But there is no reason to be disappointed as students with Asthma and related allergies can qualify for various scholarships.
