Dear IIF Follower:
I am proudly writing to inform you of our latest project. The IIF team has been working hard to establish a scholarship fund dedicated to easing the financial burdens that students and their families face as a result of their IBD.
We know that life with IBD is not easy. Students are often forced to make the difficult decisions of withdrawing from classes in lieu of the cost of testing, treatments and recovery. The monetary implications of IBD can be compounded further as it frequently takes a student additional time to complete their degree.
One of our missions is to award scholarships to college aged students suffering from moderate to severe IBD. Thus we have launched the Intense Intestines Scholarship Program (“IISP”) and we are eager to fulfill our mission.
As of today, I am very pleased to announce that we are officially accepting applications for IISP. Applications can be found on the IIF website, by clicking the link found at the bottom of this page.
At the same time, we need your help spreading the word about our scholarship program. We are asking our friends, families, colleagues and supporters to reach out and share our drive and passion in making the IISP a success.
I thank you in advance for your support in the coming months as we begin IISP’s journey. We are very excited to hear from applicants and to read their stories. With your help we can keep the IISP going and growing for many years to come.
