RARE Scholars, an annual scholarship for students living with rare disease,
aims to empower patients with continued education by recognizing
students who have demonstrated leadership and participation in school
and community activities.
The RARE Scholars program distributes up to $20,000 each year in June,
awarding $5,000 for undergraduate four-year or graduate studies or $2,500
for two-year or vocational-technical studies. Applicants must be high school
seniors, graduates or current postsecondary or graduate level students
diagnosed with mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS), phenylketonuria (PKU) or
Batten disease. Applicants are not required to have ever used a BioMarin product
and are considered regardless of treatment status.
