    Earning a Doctor of Pharmacy degree is impressive because it includes challenging academics and service to others once you graduate. There are many career options once you receive your Pharm.D. For example, graduates can choose research, working in hospital settings, or serving the general public as the “neighborhood” pharmacist. Our list includes a few scholarship opportunities for pharmacy technicians as well. No matter what your future pharmaceutical path looks like, pharmacy school scholarships will help you reach them!

    ** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
    ***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.

    How to win pharmacy scholarships 

    Finding scholarships to apply for is only half the battle. Once you’ve found a scholarship, you still must apply and beat out other candidates to win it. Luckily, we have quite a few resources that can help you!  

     Being familiar with the common scholarship application questions that are out there is a great place to start. Once you know what a scholarship requires, you can take advantage of more specific articles that show you how to write a 250 word essay or a 500 word essay, how to write a scholarship resume and how to write an essay about yourself.  

    Remember, winning scholarships is not something that happens randomly. You have to put in the work, but with us at your side, receiving scholarships should become more common!

    Financial aid tips for pharmacy school students

    Current and prospective pharmacy school students can also qualify for other types of financial aid!

    Need-based financial aid

    Make sure that you also take advantage of all need-based financial aid opportunities. Even if you don’t think you qualify, it is smart to apply since we never know what the future holds. This includes applying for Pell Grants, federal student loans, and work study. To apply for need-based financial aid, submit the FAFSA and for some schools, the CSS Profile.

    Remember, deadlines are important! Be sure to apply for financial aid by the appropriate CSS Profile and FAFSA deadlines. If you apply for financial aid and are accepted to the college, you will receive a financial aid award letter. Your letter outlines the various types of aid available to you.

    College-specific scholarships

    Finally, make sure that you research scholarships at the colleges and universities that you are applying at. Many times, they offer unique scholarship opportunities that you won’t find by doing a general online search. Good luck!

    Frequently asked questions about pharmacy school scholarships

    Does CVS pay for pharmacy school?

    CVS offers their interns the opportunity for a $5,000-per-year scholarship to put them through pharmacy school. This award is renewable for a maximum of four total years. So, if you take full advantage of it, CVS will pay for $20,000 of your pharmacy school costs as an intern. In most cases, this will not pay for the entire cost of pharmacy school. You’ll probably have to apply for federal financial aid and other scholarships on top of it. However, don’t write off the scholarship – $5,000 per year can go a long way, and most students earn their scholarships piece-by-piece.

    Can I use FAFSA for pharmacy school?

    Yes – any student applying for pharmacy school should fill out the FAFSA.

It’s free and relatively simple to complete, and if your financial situation changes sometime between your school application and the beginning of your semester, you’ll be glad to have more options for aid.
