Scholar-in-Residence Programs 

Applications for AACP Scholar-in-Residence programs are due Dec. 1 for the program occurring in the following academic year. One Scholar-in-Residence is selected each year. AACP has two Scholar-in-Residence opportunities for you to consider for your faculty development: the AACP/AAAS Congressional Fellowship Program and the Donald C. Brodie AACP Academic Scholar-in-Residence. AACP annually budgets to partially support one of these faculty development programs, including a supplemental stipend and housing. Support from one's home institution or self is necessary to participate in the program. AACP maintains a fully furnished condominium in Alexandria, Va., one block from AACP headquarters and accessible to the Metro, which is provided to the selected candidate.

Through their experiences in each program, scholars are able to develop, implement and participate in projects that further their expertise and enhance goals of pharmacy education.

The AACP/AAAS Congressional Fellowship Program, a partnership with the Congressional Science and Engineering Fellowship Program of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), places highly-qualified pharmacy scholars within the offices of individual members of Congress or Congressional committees in which they serve as full-time Congressional staff members. Fellows gain invaluable experience in the policy and legislative processes of government, while contributing professional insights, perspectives and technical expertise from their disciplines. The Congressional Fellowship involves 12 months of residence in the Washington, D.C. area and work within the federal government. Questions concerning the Congressional Fellowship Program should be directed to William G. Lang, senior policy advisor.

The Donald C. Brodie AACP Academic Scholar-in-Residence Program provides the scholar with a sabbatical opportunity to develop and examine public policy, conduct research and/or analyze an issue directly related to pharmacy education or AACP. The scholar will facilitate understanding of a major academic issue by the AACP membership, stimulate scholarly study and research in a focused area of pharmaceutical education and present a final report to AACP including data developed during the program, issues reviewed and strategic analysis and proposals. The term for the Donald C. Brodie AACP Academic Scholar-in-Residence program is variable, but would not exceed 12 months. Questions concerning the Brodie Scholar should be directed to Ruth E. Nemire, associate executive vice president.

Applicants must submit the following materials to the AACP office via e-mail by Dec. 1. The selection and announcement of the program and participant will follow within approximately 30 to 60 days.

  1. A letter of intent from the applicant, summary of the applicant's qualifications, relevant issues of scholarly interest and description of the potential value of the particular scholar in residence program to the applicant's career objectives. Letters should not exceed two pages. The candidate should also provide the names and contact information for two individuals who can provide support for the application.
  2. A complete curriculum vitae; and
  3. A letter from the dean or other university official describing in specific detail the nature of the institution's time and financial commitment in support of the applicant's participation in the program.

Applications for the Donald C. Brodie Scholar-in-Residence program should be e-mailed to Ruth E. Nemire, associate executive vice president.

Applications for the Congressional Fellowship Scholar-in-Residence program should be e-mailed to William G. Lang, senior policy advisor.
