SolvayCares Scholarship

In the United States, Solvay Pharmaceuticals has been helping people with cystic fibrosis (CF) manage their health for more than 20 years. Our SolvayCARESSM program expands this tradition, offering comprehensive support to CF families through nutritional, educational and financial resources.

Recognizing the financial burdens that exist for many CF families, we developed the SolvayCARESSM Scholarship to honor young adults with CF as they pursue goals of post-high school education. Since 1993, we have awarded scholarship funds totaling more than $2,000,000.

The SolvayCARESSM Scholarship was created to honor young adults with cystic fibrosis as they pursue goals of post-high school education. 40 SolvayCARES Scholarship recipients, one of whom will be named the 2009 Thriving Student Achiever, were selected to receive $2,500 for use during the academic year. As a special recognition for the amazing achievements of this year’s scholarship applicants, every eligible 2009 applicant was honored with a $500 scholarship. As a result, nearly 250 students are receiving educational funding this academic year through the SolvayCARES Scholarship program!

Furthermore, to celebrate the 17th year of the scholarship, this year's Thriving Student Achiever will be awarded $17,000! Voting for the Thriving Student Achiever starts today and ends October 15th, click here to vote. You can vote online, call toll free or text so be sure to check out the site to learn more.
