The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy is pleased to announce three AACP Social and Administrative Sciences (SAS) Section Summer Research Exchange Mentorship Program awards sponsored by the American Foundation for Pharmaceutical Education (AFPE) for summer 2020. These awards of $2500 each will support student pharmacists as they pursue research with host mentors outside of their home institutions. The scholarship recipients for 2020 are:
- Robert Hopefl, Larkin University College of Pharmacy – host mentor Prashant Sakharkar, Ph.D., Roosevelt University College of Pharmacy
- Thanh Mai, Western New England University – host mentor Prashant Sakharkar, Ph.D. Roosevelt University College of Pharmacy

The SAS Research Exchange Mentorship Program is intended to foster interest in research and SAS-related graduate education among student pharmacists. The program is open to P1-P3 students, who complete a research experience with a SAS faculty member outside their home institution, building their professional network and skills for residency, fellowship, and further graduate studies.
The SAS Section and AFPE intend to offer awards for the 2021 program as well. Additional information and application instructions will be available in autumn 2020.
