Every dollar counts when the college tuition bill comes in. Shire is doing its part by launching the 2014 Michael Yasick ADHD Scholarship. The scholarship is for individuals in the U.S. diagnosed with ADHD who are accepted to, or will be enrolled in, an undergraduate program at an accredited college, university, trade school, or technical or vocational school.

Fifty one-time scholarships will be awarded in June 2014, including a $2,000 monetary award and a year of ADHD coaching services from the Edge Foundation, which will assist the scholarship recipient with the transition to higher education.

The deadline to apply is March 19, 2014. For more information and eligibility requirements, visit We wish you the best of luck!
