About the scholarship
Bristol Myers Squibb is a leading global biopharma company focused on discovering, developing, and delivering innovative medicines that help patients prevail over serious diseases. We are focused on our core therapeutic areas and are pursuing multiple drug platforms across these areas with a goal of transforming patients’ lives through science.
Our team is committed to promote health equity and continuously seeking to improve the health outcomes of populations disproportionately affected by serious diseases by strengthening healthcare worker capacity, integrating medical care and community-based supportive services, and mobilizing communities in the fight against disease. Our aim is to provide universal access to our medicines, particularly for low- and middle-income countries.
As part of our commitment to continuing our strong leadership and legacy in pioneering life-saving medicines for people around the world, Bristol Myers Squibb will support 5 young leaders who are improving the health outcomes of communities disproportionately affected by serious diseases and health problems, to attend the One Young World Summit through the Bristol Myers Squibb Scholarship.
The scholarship aims to identify and empower young leaders who are improving medical outcomes for vulnerable communities and transforming lives through science.
