John J and John P Rahal Memorial Bursary

The Rahal Family Bursary in Pharmacy was established by a generous donation from the Rahal Family. The Rahal Family 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 to 2010.

The award is valued at a portion of the income from the endowment and is presented annually to an undergraduate student entering the second year of the pharmacy program.

The award is available to a student who demonstrates 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.

Application for this bursary requires a nomination directly from a student or faculty/staff. We encourage students to nominate themselves or a fellow student who is deserving of this bursary by completing the online nomination form:
