The application process for this 2017-2018 academic year is scheduled to be open on Monday, November 20, 2017 (date subject to change) to current College of Pharmacy students.

Each year, the College of Pharmacy's Scholarships and Awards Committee reviews student applications in consideration for the conferring of these academic and service scholarships and awards. Recipients are notified by mid-February (exact date TBA) and are required to attend the Honors Convocation on Thursday, April 5, 2018 to be recognized in person. Non-attendance at this event may result in forfeiture of your award. Recipients are welcome to invite guests to attend the ceremony.

The Office of Advancement and Alumni Affairs facilitates the awarding of scholarships to students, giving generous alumni and corporate donors the opportunity to commit a tangible contribution to the education and future of a College of Pharmacy student. In the 2016-2017 academic year, more than $160,000 in such gifts were available to students as scholarships and awards.
