Shire again offers scholarship for students with ADHD
The scholarship is for U.S. residents who have been diagnosed with and are actively being treated for Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and have been accepted to or enrolled in a two- or four-year undergraduate or graduate program at an accredited college, university, trade school, technical school or vocational school in the United States.
Fifty-five recipients will receive $2,000 for tuition as well as coaching from the Edge Foundation to help the individual do their best while in school.
“Michael Yasick’s legacy of making a difference for individuals with ADHD lives on in the scholarship program, and Shire is proud to support so many talented students in his name,” Mark Rus, head of Shire’s U.S. Neuroscience franchise, said.
The Edge Foundation will meet via phone or video chat on a weekly basis for one year with the award recipients to help them achieve their goals for college. The foundation is also available to them through e-mail, text and phone.
"Shire’s scholarship program assists students with ADHD to pursue their dream of higher education,” Neil Peterson, Edge Foundation founder, chairman and CEO, said. “We are pleased and honored to be a part of this significant effort.”
