Support the NACDS Foundation
Scholarship Program

As part of the NACDS Foundation’s commitment to pharmacy education, the Foundation awards approximately $200,000 in grants and scholarships each year to accredited U.S. colleges and schools of pharmacy.

In consultation with the Foundation’s Scholarship Assessment Working Group and with the informal input of pharmacy deans from across the country, the program is designed to emphasize excellence in patient care and promote educational innovation.

Colleges and schools of pharmacy are asked to submit applications detailing educational programs that hold promise to meaningfully improve patient care or advance innovative pharmacy curriculum.

Since 1997, the program has provided more than $3.75 million in funding thanks to the generous support of our benefactors. Please join us!
