Diversity Scholarship Awards
In 2017, the NACDS Foundation is awarding Diversity Scholarships to accredited U.S. schools and colleges of pharmacy. The funding has been provided through a grant meant to foster and support pharmacy education in under-represented populations.
Under-represented students include students from under-represented racial and ethnic groups, first generation to college students, students from low income families and students with a history of overcoming adversity.
Schools and colleges of pharmacy demonstrating measurable results from an active, diversity scholarship program will be most highly considered. Winning schools are responsible for returning a two-page progress summary to the NACDS Foundation six months following the receipt of the award and at the conclusion of one year.
To apply for funding, applicants must upload a summary of their proposed project, three to five pages in length, highlighting its purpose, timeline and budget.
Applicant institutions applying for Diversity Scholarships are also eligible to apply for the 2017 Merit-based Scholarship Awards. Separate applications are required for each of the scholarship awards.
