The 2020 AACP Walmart Scholars Program is now closed. Information about future Walmart Scholars Programs will be posted as soon as it becomes available. If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
AACP and Walmart are committed to helping colleges and schools of pharmacy ensure there is an adequate number of well-prepared individuals who aspire to join the faculties at our institutions across the country. The goal of the scholarship program is to strengthen the recipient’s skills and commitment to a career in academic pharmacy through their participation at the AACP Annual Meeting.
In 2019, AACP celebrated the fifteenth year of the Walmart Scholarship Fund. The program, funded by Walmart, provided $1,000 scholarships to students from AACP member institutions to attend two AACP seminars in Chicago with a faculty mentor. The scholarship covered 100% of the student’s cost to register for the 2019 AACP Annual Meeting and Teachers Seminar. Beyond registration costs, the recipient pair applied the remainder of the scholarship money to airfare, lodging, and other meeting expenses for the student.
Graduate students, professional (doctoral) students, residents and fellows, along with their faculty mentors, are eligible to apply for the scholarships. Please note that an attempt is made to balance the number of award recipients per institution, as much as possible. P1 & P2 students and previous AACP Walmart Scholarship recipients are not eligible to apply. Previous Walmart Scholars are encouraged to serve as a mentor for future Walmart Scholars programs.
Letters from both the student and the faculty member are required to demonstrate both parties have a strong interest in enhancing their preparation for a career in academic pharmacy, as well as an essay from the student on academic pharmacy. Applications for the program are due in February of each year, pending program sponsorship.
