    Posted 26 days ago

    Hello Colleagues,

     

    This is a friendly reminder that our new Walmart Health Equity Scholarship for Pharmacy Students has launched, and closes on June 1, 2022. Please encourage your eligible students and applicants to apply!

     

    AACP and Walmart are committed to promoting education and healthcare access to improve health for all. The Walmart Health Equity Scholarship for Pharmacy Students will support the financial need of students enrolled in Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree programs who plan to serve in rural areas, medically underserved areas or populations (MUA/Ps), or Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs) upon graduation. The goal of the scholarship program is to promote and support a diverse population of student pharmacists who will advance health equity. 

    Award Information 

    The Walmart Health Equity Scholarship for Pharmacy Students will be awarded to 10 outstanding Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree students who are accepted or enrolled in the professional curriculum at a U.S. college or school of pharmacy. Selected awardees must demonstrate leadership, academic success, and a commitment to serving rural or medically underserved patient populations or areas. Each awardee will receive a single $5,000 scholarship.
