Scholarship for those diagnosed with Crohn's Disease

This is another scholarship lead I'm simply passing along. If you're an HPS'er with an interest, then you'll have to check it out for yourself. Grin!

UCB is proud to once again offer 30 one-time scholarships of up to $10,000 each in 2011. This opportunity extends to participants diagnosed with Crohn's disease (CD) who are seeking an associate's, undergraduate, or graduate degree, or who are enrolled in a trade school educational program.
This is the sixth year UCB has had the opportunity to support those living with CD with the Crohn's Scholarship Program. The program aims to help these students continue their education and live beyond the boundaries of their disease.
UCB, Inc., is a global biopharmaceutical company committed to developing innovative treatments for inflammatory diseases such as CD. UCB is dedicated to creating unique programs and tools to help people with Crohn’s fulfill their educational ambitions.
We are proud to sponsor a scholarship program that recognizes and rewards your ability to take control of Crohn's—and not allow it to control you.
