The NACDS Foundation awards Diversity Focus grants to accredited U.S. schools and colleges of pharmacy. The funding was provided through a grant meant to foster and support education in under-represented populations.
Under-represented populations 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.
The Foundation is interested in applications focusing on recruitment and retention of current pharmacy school students from diverse backgrounds as well as promoting diversity among college and post-secondary students who have expressed interest in the healthcare professions. Schools demonstrating measurable results from an active, diversity program will be most highly considered.
Applicant institutions applying for Track II Diversity Focus Awards may also apply for the Innovation Awards. Separate applications are required for each.
To apply for funding, applicants must upload a summary of their proposed project highlighting its purpose, timeline and budget using the templates provided.
