Abbvie Stock Outlook and Reported Financials, Celebrates 30th Annual Cystic Fibrosis Scholarship

Abbvie Stock

For the two $25,000 scholarships, forty kids with cystic fibrosis (CF) are competing based on their academic achievement, inventiveness, and extracurricular activities. The scholarship program this year commemorates 30 years of AbbVie's (NYSE:ABBV) dedication to CF kids seeking higher education.

The beginning of the two-week public voting session for the 2022 Thriving Undergraduate and Graduate Scholarships was announced by AbbVie today. Following this voting session, two deserving students with cystic fibrosis (CF), a hereditary chronic condition that affects the lungs and digestive system, will receive scholarships worth $25,000 each.

The public is invited to visit the official AbbVie CF Scholarship website starting today and continuing through September 28 at 10 a.m. Central Time to read the essays and see the innovative presentations of this year's top 40 students. The 2022 Thriving Undergraduate and Graduate Scholarship winners will then be decided by popular vote. During the two-week public voting session, votes may be made online or by text message by sending the scholar's unique ID code to "58185." 

Beyond receiving the AbbVie CF Scholarship, Melissa W., a 2021 Thriving Graduate Student, expressed her gratitude for having the opportunity to share her cystic fibrosis story with the world. "With the support of this scholarship, I am eager to continue utilizing my voice to inspire and advocate for others as I pursue my degree in human resources management."

AbbVie chose 40 undergraduate and graduate CF-affected students earlier this year to receive a $3,000 grant to be used throughout the 2022–2023 academic year. Their outstanding academic performance, creativity, and extracurricular activity all played a part in the award. The opportunity to become a "2022 Thriving Undergraduate or Graduate Student" and receive an additional $22,000 in scholarship money for their higher education is now available to these 40 students. The two winners will be chosen based on the aggregate points each scholar received from the AbbVie judging panel when they assessed the student essays and creative presentations, as well as the total number of valid votes given by the public.

According to John Duffey, vice president of U.S. Specialty at AbbVie, "The 30th anniversary of the AbbVie CF Scholarship program recognizes the community of students we have been able to support throughout the years in their efforts to seek higher education." 

"The top 40 beneficiaries for 2022 are beyond deserving and have inspired us all with their remarkable stories and intentions to accomplish their goals despite living with CF," said one of the judges. Beginning in early November, AbbVie will reveal the 2022 Thriving Undergraduate and Graduate Students.
