2019 Walmart Scholars Information & Application Instructions

Deadline to apply is February 15, 2019 by 11:59 p.m. ET. If you have any questions, please contact walmartscholars@aacp.org.

AACP and Walmart share the commitment to help colleges and schools of pharmacy ensure there is an adequate number of well-prepared individuals who aspire to join the faculties at our expanding number of 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 2018, AACP celebrated the fourteenth year of the Walmart Scholarship Fund. The program, funded by Walmart, provided $1,000 scholarships to 85 students from AACP member institutions to attend two AACP seminars in Boston, Massachusetts with a faculty mentor. The scholarship covered 100% of the student’s cost to register for the 2018 AACP Annual Meeting and Teachers Seminar. Beyond registration costs, the recipient pair should apply 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. Previous AACP Walmart Scholarship recipients are ineligible.

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.

The 2019 AACP Walmart Scholars Program will provide $1,000 scholarships to up to 85 students to attend the 2019 AACP Annual Meeting and Teachers Seminar in Chicago, Illinois from July 13-17 with a faculty mentor.
