|This year marks the 20th Anniversary of a scholarship program that has honored young adults with cystic fibrosis (CF) as they pursue their dreams while living with a chronic disease. The CFCareForward Scholarship program has provided supplemental educational funding via more than 500 scholarships to students who are also challenged by the financial burden of their disease, enabling them to achieve their goals of higher education. To celebrate the 20th year of the Scholarship, two $20,000 scholarships will be awarded to one undergraduate and graduate student for use during the 2012-2013 academic year. Forty students will be awarded a $2,500 Scholarship based on their achievements, essay and creative presentation submitted with the application. These students will then go on to compete in an online public voting contest to be named one of this yearâ€™s two Thriving Students.|
