The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Scholarship Foundation (CFSF) is to provide an opportunity for young adults with CF to further their education at a college or vocational school. This possibility is often out of reach for families with CF children because of the high cost of medical care from the time these students were babies. We at CFSF believe in the future of these young adults, their ability to achieve personal and educational goals, and their importance in making a long-term contribution to society on all levels.
Because of continual advances in medicine, the adult CF population continues to grow, creating a greater and greater need for this program. So our goal each year is to increase the number of young adults who receive our assistance.
Scholarships are awarded on the basis of educational performance, personal achievement, and financial need as submitted by the student in our scholarship application form.
The CFSF receives no financial support from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. However, the CFSF wishes to thank the CFF for their assistance in communicating our program to the young adult CF population.
