Vertex Foundation Scholarship

The Vertex Foundation Scholarship Program helps eligible students affected by cystic fibrosis (CF) and their immediate family members or caregivers afford college. Scholarships of $5,000 each are awarded to students pursuing two-year, three-year, four-year undergraduate 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 are enrolled 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.
