The AbbVie CF Scholarship recognizes exceptional students with Cystic Fibrosis who demonstrate academic excellence, community involvement, creativity, and the ability to serve as a positive role model for the Cystic Fibrosis community. Each year, AbbVie awards 40 scholars with $3,000 each. Two of these students (an undergraduate and a graduate) are then selected to receive a Thriving Student Scholarship, winning an additional $22,000 each.
This scholarship is designed for students with Cystic Fibrosis pursuing an undergraduate degree (Associate's/2-year college, Bachelor’s/4-year college, trade school/vocational school) or graduate degree (Master’s, Doctorate) during the academic year. Applicants must have completed high school or obtained a General Educational Development (GED) certification on or before June. Students applying for the scholarships must be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program in the school year the scholarship is awarded. Students in their final semester of undergraduate study may only apply if they will be pursuing a graduate program in the following school year. Both full-time and part-time students may apply.
