ATLANTA, Jan. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- UCB announced today the launch of the 2008 UCB Crohn's Scholarship Program, which will award 30, one-time scholarships of up to $10,000 each to students diagnosed with Crohn's disease who demonstrate academic ambition and drive to reach beyond the boundaries of their condition.
