Crohn's and Colitis Canada AbbVieIBD Scholarship Program

Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are most frequently diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 30, with the typical onset being in the early 20s. A recent study found that 69% of people who had Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis when they were young were delayed in completing their post-secondary education. The AbbVie IBD Scholarship Program recognizes the obstacles faced by students living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis and supports them in rising above their personal challenges in pursuit of their dreams.

Supported by an educational grant from AbbVie, Crohn’s and Colitis Canada will extend ten (10) one-time scholarships of up to $5,000 to students living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis who are entering into or currently attending a post-secondary educational institution for the Fall semester of 2014. The AbbVie IBD Scholarship is a competitive bursary.
