The ABBVIE CF SCHOLARSHIP was created to honor young adults
with cystic fibrosis as they pursue goals of higher education.


  • Each year, AbbVie selects 40 distinguished scholars to receive $3,000 for their qualified education expenses based on established criteria, including academic record and extracurricular activities, essay and creative presentation.
  • Once selected, these 40 scholars will also have a chance to compete for one of two Thriving Student Scholarships (based on level of study) for a total amount of $25,000 each.
