iStock_45005750_XXXLARGE v3Financial scholarships for college students are wonderful, but they don’t ensure successful completion and graduation. That’s why we provide Edge Coaches to support scholarship recipients as a form of scholarship insurance.

The Shire Scholarship Program is Currently Not Being Offered

Since 2011, the Edge Foundation has partnered with Shire PLC to provide Edge coaches for college students with ADHD who have received scholarships through the Michael Yasick ADHD Scholarship program. During that time, the program has awarded over 340 Edge coaches to scholarship recipients. However, Shire was recently acquired and the new ownership is placing this and other programs like it on hold for review starting with the 2019 / 2020 academic year.
