The AbbVie CF Scholarship application for the 2018-2019 school year will be posted in the spring of 2018.


  • Each year, AbbVie selects 40 distinguished scholars to receive $3,000 for use during the upcoming school year based on established criteria, including academic record and extracurricular activities, essay and creative presentation.
  • Public votes helped one undergraduate student and one graduate student win Thriving Student Scholarships of $25,000 each, in honor of the 25th year of the scholarship program.
  • This year, an additional $25,000 Blogger’s Choice Award was given to a student* determined by a panel of cystic fibrosis bloggers** who evaluated each scholar’s creative submission.
