UCB Crohn's Scholarship Program to Award $300,000 to Students with Crohn's Disease
Date:1/10/2008

bition and embraces a way of life that overcomes the boundaries of living with Crohn's disease.

Employees of UCB and their immediate family members are not eligible for this scholarship. Selection of recipients will be at the sole discretion of the physician panel members. After a winner's educational enrollment has been verified for the fall 2008 semester, the scholarship check will be made payable to and directly mailed to the educational institution. Scholarship amounts will be up to $10,000 each to cover the recipient's tuition and/or educational materials expenses. However, if a student does not have a minimum of $10,000 in educational expenses owed for his/her schooling, the scholarship amount will only cover the remaining amount. Scholarship money cannot be used towards expenses other than those due to the school for education expenses. If UCB learns that an applicant does not have any remaining costs owed to the academic institution, he/she will no longer be eligible for the scholarship. Winners of the 2006 and 2007 scholarship programs are not eligible for the 2008 scholarship program.

About Crohn's Disease

Crohn's disease is a chronic and debilitating inflammatory disease of the gastrointestinal tract, affecting more than 500,000 people in the United States. Crohn's is a lifelong chronic condition, but most people are diagnosed in their late teens and early twenties. Crohn's sufferers go through unpredictable periods when the disease flares up and causes symptoms. These episodes are often followed by times of remission - periods in which symptoms disappear or decrease and good health returns.
