The Education Advantage program represents Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited’s ongoing commitment to the bleeding disorders community.
This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Scholarship America is solely responsible for reviewing all scholarship applications, determining eligibility, and selecting recipients. Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited is not involved in the decision making process.
Applicants to the Education Advantage University Scholarship Program must meet all of the following criteria:
Applicants may only apply for an award from one program per year.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $5,000 award. Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time course of study, proof of an annual visit to a comprehensive clinic and continuation of the program by Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited.
Renewal may be extended beyond three years in the event that a student requires an additional year of study to complete a full-time course load or in the event that health problems or other exceptional circumstances result in a longer than traditional length of study.
Awards are for undergraduate study only and may be used for tuition, fees, books and supplies only.
Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of the following:
Financial need is not considered. Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited play a part in the selection. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
Applicants will be notified in mid August. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. Students not selected as recipients may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited. Payments are made in equal installments in September and December.
