Vertex Foundation Scholarship
The Vertex Foundation Scholarship Program helps students living with cystic fibrosis (CF) and their immediate family members or caregivers afford college. Scholarships of $5,000 each are awarded to students pursuing two-year, four-year or graduate degrees across the United States and Canada.
To apply, you must be a U.S. or Canadian citizen or legal permanent resident, and you must either be diagnosed with CF or be an immediate family member* or caregiver of someone diagnosed with CF. High school seniors; students in their final year of upper/higher secondary school; current technical or college/university undergraduates and current graduate students are all eligible to apply, as long as you plan to enroll at least part-time in undergraduate or graduate study at an accredited school next year. Awards are not renewable, but you may apply each year that you meet eligibility requirements.
*Immediate family members are defined as a sibling, child, or spouse.
