The College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences awards a limited number of 6-year Pharmacy Hero Scholarships to entering first-year students from high school who are pursuing Drake’s PharmD program.
Award: The Pharmacy Hero Scholarship is a $3,000 award per year for the 6 years of Drake’s PharmD degree (total of $18,000). The Pharmacy Hero Scholarship can be applied in addition to Drake’s Presidential Scholarship.
Application Process: Eligible Fall 2021 candidates must apply to Drake as a pre-pharmacy major by December 1, 2020. A student's application for admission will automatically be considered for the Pharmacy Hero Scholarship. In addition, Pharmacy Hero Scholarship applicants will be required to attend a virtual Pharmacy Hero Program in January 2021 to learn more from current Drake pharmacy students and alumni on how they’ve been heroes in healthcare–especially during these current unique times. The invite to attend this Pharmacy Hero Scholarship virtual program will be sent to eligible applicants via email. Scholarship decisions will be made in Spring 2021.
