The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy Social and Administrative Sciences (SAS) Section Summer Research Exchange Mentorship Program application for 2021 is now open. A list of 2021 projects can be found below. The program is intended to foster interest in research and SAS-related graduate education among student pharmacists and is open to current P1-P3 students. Student participants will 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 program this year will be virtual.
For the 2021 program, the American Foundation for Pharmaceutical Education (AFPE) will once again be offering $2500 scholarships for especially meritorious applications. These awards will support student pharmacists as they pursue research with host mentors outside of their home institutions.
Interested students should complete the program application and upload a copy of their Curriculum Vitae (CV.) One letter of recommendation from a home school mentor/advisor is also required; mentors will be contacted with instructions for uploading their letter upon submission of a complete application. The application and all materials must be submitted by March 26, 2021.
