CF Scholarship available to students in the USA

I have been asked to mention the below scholarship that is available to all CF's living in the USA on my blog! I have many followers from the US and many US facebook friends so thought it would be good to share this:

Going to college or university can be expensive, but for students living with cystic fibrosis (CF), a legacy scholarship can help alleviate the financial burden.
Today, AbbVie announced that undergraduate and graduate students living with CF can now apply for the AbbVie CF Scholarship. For nearly 25 years, AbbVie’s legacy scholarship program has supported the CF community by providing financial assistance to exceptional undergraduate and graduate students who are pursuing their dreams of higher education.
This year, 40 students will be awarded $2,500 each based on their outstanding academic record, extracurricular activities, and creativity. In honor of the 22nd year of the program, the 40 recipients will compete for public votes to qualify for the title of Thriving Undergraduate or Graduate Student to receive a total scholarship of $22,000 (the original $2,500 scholarship plus an additional $19,500). 
Applications will be accepted until Monday, June 9 and are available online now at: For more information, visit  to view creative submissions of past winners and learn more about the application criteria, contest rules and upcoming deadlines surrounding the application process.
Previous scholarship recipient James D., an undergraduate student studying business finance, is available to share his experience living with CF and how receiving the scholarship has impacted his life.
