Every year the Thomas J. Long School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences hosts the annual Pharmacy Scholarship Ceremony to honor students and donors. More than 100 students were recognized for their academic excellence and awarded with nearly $400,000 in scholarships.
The awards are made based on a combination of factors, including financial need, demonstrated academic excellence, and the nature of the academic program. Scholarships assist to bridge the financial gap and help students achieve their educational and professional goals.
“In addition to helping me reduce the amount of loans I need to take out, scholarships are genuine encouragement and motivation to move forward in my goal of becoming a great community pharmacist,” says Lana Nguyen ’14. Nguyen was the recipient of the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) Foundation Pharmacy Partners Scholarship and the Arvind and Kumud Patel Pharmacy Scholarship.
A reception was held following the ceremony, allowing students and donors to connect and share their stories.
