ADHD Scholarship Program
In 2011, Shire launched its first ADHD Scholarship Program in the US. The Scholarship recognizes and supports people diagnosed with ADHD who are pursuing higher education at accredited colleges, universities, vocational schools, or technical schools.
Shire awards 50 scholarships in the US, each comprised of $2,000 and one year of ADHD coaching provided by the Edge Foundation. Shire also awards up to five scholarships to its US employees or their immediate family members who have been diagnosed with ADHD.
Building on the success of the US Scholarship Program, Shire launched the Shire Canada ADHD Scholarship Program in 2013. The Program offers five scholarships in Canada to qualified residents of Quebec, Ontario, and Alberta. Each scholarship includes $1,500 CAD and one year of ADHD coaching provided by the Edge Foundation.
ADHD coaching is provided as part of the Scholarship to assist recipients in the transition to higher education. A year of weekly coaching sessions supports students in seven major areas: scheduling, goal setting, confidence building, organizing, focusing, prioritizing, and persisting at tasks.
