UCB Canada Inc. scholarship opportunities

Program Overview
UCB Canada Inc. is proud to announce the launch of the UCBeyond 2013 Scholarship Program. The UCBeyond 2013 Scholarship Program, now in its seventh year has, to date, allocated 116 scholarships and approximately $585,000 CAD to Canadian students.

UCB Canada Inc., a global biopharmaceutical company committed to developing innovative treatments for inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), is dedicated to creating unique programs and tools to aid patients in reaching above and beyond the boundaries of their disease and fulfilling their educational ambitions.

Living day-to-day with inflammatory arthritis can be a struggle. You work hard to manage the disease and to focus on living beyond the boundaries of your condition. Your resolve is a testament to yourself and an inspiration to others who have inflammatory arthritis. That is why UCB Canada Inc. is sponsoring a scholarship program that rewards your ability to take control of your inflammatory arthritis, instead of allowing it to control you.

Scholarship Awards
UCB Canada Inc. is offering one-time scholarships of up to $5,000 CAD in 2013 to students diagnosed with inflammatory arthritis, who are entering into or currently attending a post-secondary educational institution.
