Crohn’s and Colitis Canada is proud to launch the fifth annual AbbVie IBD Scholarship Program. A recent study found that 69% of people who had Crohn's Disease or ulcerative colitis when they were young were delayed in completing their post-secondary education. The AbbVIe IBD Scholarship Program recognizes the obstacles faced by students living with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis and supports them in rising above their personal challenges in pursuit of their dreams.
