AbbVie, a global research and development-based biopharmaceutical company, announced that the AbbVie CF Scholarship program is accepting applications for the 2019-2020 academic school year. Undergraduate and graduate students are invited to apply for the scholarship until May 29, 2019 by visiting www.AbbVieCFScholarship.com. Now in its 27th year, the program has awarded over $3 million in scholarships to deserving students across the country.
“As a recipient of an AbbVie CF Scholarship, I hope that I can inspire other students living with CF to strive to be the best they can be,” said Vinny Holmquist, 2018 recipient of the Thriving Undergraduate Scholarship. “Living with CF presented many challenges for me and my family, but it also motivated me to be a hard worker. I’m proud to say that the AbbVie CF scholarship has enabled me to continue my education and has helped me pursue a degree in business administration.”
AbbVie will select 40 scholars to receive $3,000 for use during the 2019-2020 academic year based on their creativity, academic excellence, community involvement and the ability to serve as a positive role model for the CF community. These scholars will also be given the opportunity to compete for a total of $25,000 for use toward education-related expenses through one of two AbbVie CF Scholarship award categories: Thriving Undergraduate Student and Thriving Graduate Student.
“Students living with CF are able to lead meaningful, impactful lives and make valuable contributions in their schools and local communities,” said John Duffey, vice president, U.S. Specialty, AbbVie. “It’s a privilege to recognize the amazing accomplishments of our AbbVie CF scholarship recipients. We are proud to continue our commitment to these remarkable students.”
