ouse for the President of the United States.

"Despite having lived with Crohn's since I was fifteen-years-old, I have never let it impede my ability to achieve the goals I've set for myself," said Riva. "The scholarship stands for everything I believe in: that one can truly succeed in the wake of challenges. I am passionate about law, public policy, and politics and hope that my fight to seek funding for and promote awareness of Crohn's can someday make an impact on the lives of others who, like me, are affected by it."

The 2008 UCB Crohn's Scholarship Program builds on $420,000 in UCB scholarships granted in 2006 and 2007 for people with Crohn's seeking higher education.

In 2007, UCB continued the program awarding academic excellence and perseverance by providing 31 students from across the country with one-time scholarships of up to $10,000 each.
