In 2017, UCB will award thirty-two scholarships to people living with epilepsy, their family members and caregivers pursuing higher education. Thirty applicants who demonstrate academic and personal achievement will receive scholarships of up to $5,000 each. In addition, two applicants will receive Epilepsy Leader Scholarships of up to $10,000 each honoring the late Sandra Helmers, MD, MPH and the late John M. Pellock, MD, two prominent figures in the epilepsy community who passed away in 2016. The recipients of the Epilepsy Leader Scholarships will demonstrate academic and personal achievement and will also exemplify some of the qualities that Drs. Helmers and Pellock were best known for including a desire to advocate for and serve others, an interest in positively contributing to the epilepsy community and a persevering spirit.
