2019 Vertex CF Scholarships

2019 Vertex CF Scholarships

The Vertex CF Scholarships help people with CF and their immediate family members pursue two-year, four-year or graduate degrees. During the academic year, Vertex awards 85 scholarships of $5,000 to recipients in the U.S. and Canada. 

Applications for the 2020-2021 academic year will be accepted starting in September 2019 and recipients will be notified in Q1 of 2020. In 2020, the Vertex CF Scholarships will be renamed to The Vertex Foundation Scholarships and will be funded by The Vertex Foundation, which seeks to improve the lives of people with serious diseases and its communities through education, innovation, and health.
