Since 1993, students living with Cystic Fibrosis have been awarded over $3.4 million through the AbbVie CF Scholarship program.

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.
