What Is Chart Your Own Course?
Genzyme has introduced Chart Your Own Course, a new program established to help students in the lysosomal storage disorder (LSD) community pursue their educational dreams! Their independent review committee will select eight qualified recipients, who will each be awarded a $2,500 scholarship.
Who Is Eligible?
Anyone living with an LSD — regardless of treatment status — may apply for Chart Your Own Course. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or green card holders who will be full-time students in Fall 2013 at an accredited college, university, or vocational or trade school. Find out more about eligibility.
