John J. and John P. Rahal Memorial Bursary
This bursary was established by a generous donation from the Rahal Family. The Bursary honours the memory of the prominent pharmacists of John. J. Rahal and John P. Rahal. John J. Rahal was one of the thirty-one charter members of the Newfoundland Pharmaceutical Society in 1910. His son, John P. Rahal served as Registrar and Auditor of Newfoundland Pharmaceutical Society from 1943 to 1952. Both father and son were included on a listing of the hundred most notable pharmacists in Newfoundland and Labrador from 1910-2010. Valued at a portion of the income from the endowment, it will be endowed annually to a student entering the second third year of the Pharmacy program who has shown outstanding skills in communicating with patients and the potential for becoming an excellent pharmacist. The recipient must have demonstrated financial need as well as meet the minimum academic requirements for a bursary as defined by Memorial University of Newfoundland. The bursary will be awarded by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards on the recommendation of the Dean of the School of Pharmacy.
