Vertex Pharmaceuticals has launched a new college scholarship program for people affected by cystic fibrosis, the debilitating and often fatal lung disease that the Boston-based company has spent decades trying to tackle. Vertex (VRTX) said Friday it had awarded $5,000 each to 40 students nationwide — 26 cystic fibrosis patients and 14 immediate family members — for a total of $200,000.
