AbbVie Immunology Scholarship

The AbbVie Immunology Scholarship aims to reduce the financial burden for students impacted by inflammatory diseases.
Through this scholarship, our passion for patient care is extended to empower students as they pursue a degree
and a life that is not defined by their disease.

Annual Amount


If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award of up to $15,000 dependent upon type of degree pursued:

  • Associate degree: $5,000
  • Bachelor degree: $15,000
  • Masters/PhD: $15,000

Additional Selection Criteria

It is not necessary for applicants to have taken, currently take, or intend to take in the future any medicine or product marketed by AbbVie; this will not be a consideration in the recipient-selection process.

Applicants to the AbbVie Immunology Scholarship must be:

  • A US citizen or a legal and permanent resident of the US
  • Diagnosed with AD, AS, CD, HS, JIA, Ps, PsA, RA, UC, or UV by a healthcare professional. (If the applicant has been diagnosed with more than one of these inflammatory diseases, the applicant should choose the most relevant inflammatory disease for this application.)
  • Enrolling in full-time undergraduate or graduate study at an accredited United States two-year or four-year college, university, or vocational technical school for the 2023-2024 academic year.
  • Applicants must have completed high school or obtained a General Education Development (GED) certificate before the end of June 2023.

Those who do not receive a scholarship are invited to reapply in future. Previous recipients of any AbbVie scholarships are not eligible to apply.

Employees of AbbVie and their immediate family members are not eligible. Healthcare providers and their immediate family members are not eligible. Patients contracted by AbbVie through Patient Health Perspectives are not eligible.
