Financial Aid and Scholarships

Pharmacy students finance their education through a variety of mechanisms including financial aid, working as a pharmacy intern, and scholarships. The school has financial aid advisors who are very knowledgeable about the needs and requirements for Pharm.D. students. Pharm.D. students are eligible for a range of scholarships once they are admitted into the school. Applications are accepted each spring for the available scholarships. Students are encouraged to review the Pharmacy Student Budget Planning Guide (PDF) as they determine the full cost of their education.
