Foundation Student Scholarships

Support pharmacy's future with a "named" Pharmacy Student scholarship!

For pharmacists and friends:

How can I/ or my company sponsor a "named" scholarship?

Support PPA's Educational Foundation grant program and sponsor a "named" scholarship for a pharmacy student!  Deadline to be a supporting individual or company for the 2017 - 2018 school year is March 1, 2017. If you are interested in supporting pharmacy's future, contact The Educational Foundation.


Scholarships committed to by this deadline will be presented in the Fall 2017.  For more specifics on the timetable, please see FAQ below.


Companies and or individuals may sponsor a scholarship.  However, in order to name the scholarship, we do ask for a minimum two-year commitment, or a commitment at the magna level, and prefer up to five (5) years.  Those who only wish to commit for one year will be placed in a general scholarship fund to be periodically distributed under the Foundation name. Smaller amounts will be accepted similarly. 


"Named" Scholarships are available in three levels.


If you are interested in a different arrangement than outlined here, please contact Pat Epple to discuss your options.
