To continue to develop and energize our diverse student body, the College of Pharmacy offers a limited number of scholarships based on criteria such as leadership experiences, unique personal abilities or talents, health care-related experiences, racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, geographic and/or intellectual diversity, perspective in overcoming obstacles to academic success or others.
