UCB Announces 2008 UCB Family RA Scholarship Program Recipients
Date:10/28/2008

A total of $100,000 Awarded to 10 Individuals Reaching Beyond the Boundaries of Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fulfilling Educational Ambitions

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- 5:00 am PDT -- UCB announced today the winners of the 2008 UCB Family RA Scholarship Program, which this year awarded a total of $100,000 to 10 students of all ages for fulfilling their educational ambitions and reaching beyond the confines of rheumatoid arthritis. The scholarship is awarded to individuals diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis or immediate family members (parent, spouse, child, or sibling) of someone with the disease.

The symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis can make even the simplest everyday tasks difficult to undertake as the disease may cause painful inflammation of the joints, such as the fingers, thumbs, wrists, feet and ankles, and structural damage that can be disabling. The disease affects not just the individual but the whole family.

"The UCB Family RA Scholarship Program recognizes extraordinary individuals who are committed to accomplishing their educational goals and dedicated to overcoming the challenges posed by rheumatoid arthritis," said Michael Weinblatt, M.D., chairman of the scholarship selection board.

The winners of this one-time award were selected from a pool of 116 applicants from 26 states.

"UCB is truly honored to recognize these ten individuals who have risen above the obstacles of RA," said David Robinson, Vice President and General Manager of the Inflammation Business Unit at UCB. "We hope the scholarship will help these individuals pursue their highest academic aspirations."

Recipients were considered based on their applications, personal essays, and letters of recommendation. The 2008 recipients include:

-- Andrea Blamble, Ohio University

-- Alexandra Blasi, Washburn University, School of Law and School of
