The WVU School of Pharmacy has made it a priority to help every student achieve their goal of becoming a future pharmacist and to provide exceptional professional growth experiences by increasing the availability of scholarship awards.
Across the country, the cost of a college education continues to rise as public institutions, like WVU, are faced with increased cuts to federal and state budgets. To offset these cuts, institutions are forced to raise tuition and fees, increasing the financial burden on our students and their families. School of Pharmacy graduates currently average a debt of $89,351*.
By increasing the availability of scholarship awards, the School can also establish recruitment-focused scholarships, positioning the School to attract and retain a diverse, high-achieving student population.
In addition, the School seeks to increase the opportunities for students to participate and present at national and international meetings and conferences, as well as increase the opportunity to participate in global rotational experiences. By supporting these activities through scholarships, the School fosters professional growth and encourages the development of a global healthcare perspective.
Your support for scholarship awards can help alleviate some of the financial burden and reduce our students’ debt, while ensuring high quality educational experiences.
