UCB will offer 30 scholarships of up to $5,000 and 2 scholarships of up to $10,000 in 2017.
The UCB Family Epilepsy Scholarship Program offers educational scholarships to people living with epilepsy, family members and caregivers to help them fullfill their dreams. Since 2005, UCB has awarded over $1,900,000 in scholarships to more than 380 deserving people who have applied their awards to undergraduate and graduate studies.
In 2017, UCB will award thirty-two scholarships to people living with epilepsy, their family members and caregivers pursuing higher education. Thirty applicants who demonstrate academic and personal achievement will receive scholarships of up to $5,000 each. In addition, two applicants will receive Epilepsy Leader Scholarships of up to $10,000 each honoring the late Sandra Helmers, MD, MPH and the late John M. Pellock, MD, two prominent figures in the epilepsy community who passed away in 2016. The recipients of the Epilepsy Leader Scholarships will demonstrate academic and personal achievement and will also exemplify some of the qualities that Drs. Helmers and Pellock were best known for including a desire to advocate for and serve others, an interest in positively contributing to the epilepsy community and a persevering spirit.
Applications for the 2017 scholarship program are due March 10, 2017.
