AbbVie is honored to continue the nearly 25 year commitment of helping people with cystic fibrosis (CF). The AbbVie CF Scholarship program expands this tradition, offering support to CF families through financial assistance towards higher education.

Recognizing the financial burdens that exist for many CF families, we developed the AbbVie CF Scholarship to honor young adults with CF as they pursue goals of higher education. Since 1993, we have awarded scholarship funds through this program totaling more than $2.6 million.

The AbbVie CF Scholarship has been consistently inspired by the outstanding attitudes, accomplishments and spirit of our scholars. That's why in 2011, the Thriving Undergraduate Student and Thriving Graduate Student awards were created, to provide recipients with an opportunity to earn more scholarship funding and share their success stories with people across the country.
