Scholarships and Awards

Pharmacy Students

The School of Pharmacy has many awards available to students which are sponsored by pharmaceutical manufacturers, and other companies and individuals.

These awards are granted based on certain criteria. Some awards are given based on financial need, others are based on performance in a specific course or subject area and others are based on student involvement in activities outside the classroom.

Selection of award recipients are determined by the School of Pharmacy Awards Committee.

In those cases where scholarships/awards are based primarily on financial need or student involvement in activities outside the classroom, the Awards Committee asks that students help us in the selection process by providing this information. Students can submit this information online by completing one or both of the surveys below. This information must be submitted on or before June 13, 2014.

Financial need information: http://fluidsurveys.com/surveys/lisa-bishop/school-of-pharmacy-awards-application-2014/    (This information will remain confidential and is only reviewed by the School of Pharmacy Awards Committee).

In addition, some of our awards require nominations directly from students or faculty/staff. We are currently receiving those applications for 2013. We encourage students to nominate themselves or a fellow student who is deserving of an award by completing the online nomination form. Students can receive 2 MUPS points for every student they nominate or vote for an award. http://fluidsurveys.com/surveys/lisa-bishop/pharmacy-student-award-nominations-2014/    These nominations must be received on or before June 13, 2014.
