Healthcare Scholarship: American Pharmacists Association (APhA) Foundation Student Scholarship

Overview of the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) Foundation Student Scholarship

The American Pharmacists Association (APhA) Foundation Student Scholarship Program is designed to recognize and reward full-time pharmacy students who are also members of their school’s AphA-ASP chapter. Thirteen to fourteen scholarships are awarded each year in the amount of $1,000 each, with the exception of The George F. Archambault scholarship, which is far $1,500.

All applicants to the AphA Foundation Student Scholarship Program must submit their applications by 11:59 P.M. PST on December 1st, 2014. To qualify as an applicant, you must have completed at least one full academic year of pharmacy curriculum. You must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.75 on a 4.0 scale. You must also be an active member of the AphA Academy of Student Pharmacists (AphA-ASP). Applicants should demonstrate active participation in their school’s AphA-ASP chapter, though they needn’t necessarily hold leadership positions within the group.

In addition to completing the application form, itself, you must submit two letters of recommendation. One must come from an academic source, such as a professor, and the other must come from a non-academic source, such as an employer. All applicants must also submit an essay of no more than 500 words. In 2014, applicants must write on the importance of innovation in the field of pharmacy and how you have taken steps to help transform the profession. Applicants should also submit an up-to-date and relevant CV or resume. All documents should be submitted electronically, using the AphA website.

In addition to the general requirements for all of the AphA scholarships, some of the particular scholarships include additional criteria. To qualify for the Colonel Jerry W. Ross Scholarship, you must demonstrate “Air Force core values” and either be an Air Force pharmacy technician or be the family member of an Air Force pharmacist or technician. To qualify for The George F. Archambault scholarship, you must be the child of a United States Public Health Service (USPHS) pharmacist or have completed a COSTEP program or other clerkship program. You must also submit a 500-word essay on how your experiences reflect the values of the USPHS. Applicants to the Charlie Thomas Scholarship must be members of Phi Lambda Sigma. For the Mary Munson Runge Scholarship, preference will be given to minority students as defined by the United States National Institute of Health.
