The West Shore Pharmaceutical Association is granting four scholarships each in the amount of $1,500. The scholarships are only available to Pharm.D. class of 2018 or 2019 students. Preference will be given to students residing in Cuyahoga, Lorain, or Medina counties and who attend an Ohio college; with that said, I would strongly encourage all students to apply. The scholarship committee will make its decision on the recipients based on the quality of a short 150 word essay. A willingness to live and practice in Cuyahoga or surrounding counties and to be involved in an organization such as Westshore Pharmaceutical Association is a plus.
The application deadline is March 14. It is hopeful that each recipient could attend the WSPA meeting and be recognized for their award before the membership. The funding for these scholarships is provided in part by the profits generated from the annual WSPA Golf Outing and from member contributions.
Completed applications should be mailed to:
Homa Davis, RPh, Scholarship Co-Chairman
31315 Lake Rd
Bay Village, Ohio 44140
I strongly encourage you to apply for this scholarship. Your time commitment for the application process is very short, you will only need to complete a one page application and write a 150 word essay. If you are borrowing student loans, the value of this scholarship increases exponentially when you compare the $1,500 scholarship to a $1,500 loan. Best of luck to those that apply.
