Pharmacists Mutual Companies is pleased to once again offer a scholarship program for P3 and P4 students. The Pharmacists Mutual Community Pharmacy Scholarship program supports a core belief of Pharmacists Mutual that independent community pharmacies and pharmacy services in underserved communities are critically important to the nation's healthcare system and to the pharmacy profession.
To be eligible, 2016-2017 pharmacy students must be at least a P3 and plan to practice in:
- an independent or small chain community pharmacy, or
- an underserved geographic or cultural community, preferably in an independent or small chain community pharmacy.
Interested students must submit an electronic application, college transcript, letter of recommendation from a faculty member or advisor, and an essay describing their interest in practicing in an independent or small chain community setting, or in an underserved community. Their essay should describe steps they have taken to prepare themselves for their chosen practice setting.
To apply, students should complete the scholarship application and submit the required documents via www.phmic.com/scholarship. The application deadline is December 1, 2016.
A Pharmacists Mutual panel will review the scholarship applications to select the recipients. Up to twenty scholarships nationwide will be awarded. Each recipient will receive $2,500.
Scholars will be notified by mid-March.
