Cystic Fibrosis Programs Offered in Canada
The Vertex Foundation Scholarship program financially helps people with cystic fibrosis (CF), or their families (siblings, caregivers, spouses, and children) in pursuing two-year, three-year, four-year, or graduate degrees. In Canada, seven scholarships are awarded annually.
Scholarship recipients are chosen by an independent committee of CF community members based on a submitted essay and an applicant’s demonstrated level of community involvement and academic achievement.
To be eligible to apply, applicants must be:
- Anticipating enrolment as a part-time or full-time first year, second year, third year, fourth year, or graduate student of a post-secondary program in Fall 2022, in good academic standing
- A person who has been diagnosed with CF or their immediate family member (sibling, caregiver, spouse, or child)
- A legal resident of Canada
Applications for the 2022-2023 academic year will be accepted from December 6, 2021 - February 1, 2022.
