"Aspiring Pharmacist" Scholarship Program

We are pleased to announce our 2014 Aspiring Pharmacist Scholarship Recipient.

We are proud to announce our inaugural "Aspiring Pharmacist" Scholarship Program. Our goal for this program is twofold:

  1. To promote pharmacology as a career path for young people.
  2. To encourage aspiring pharmacists to research and understand what a career in pharmacy requires.

Background: As a site geared towards pharmacy technician careers, we receive numerous emails from existing pharmacy technicians as well as other young people aspiring towards careers in pharmacy, each inquiring about "how to become a pharmacist". This scholarship is our way of helping to promote pharmacology as a career path for young people.   

Scholarships will be awarded to a high school senior who:

  1. Intends to pursue pharmacy at an accredited post-secondary school or college.
  2. Has a demonstrable record of academic success.
  3. Has a passion and drive for a career in pharmacology.
