OSHP Scholarship Program

The OSHP Scholarship award was established to promote personal and professional development and to celebrate the contributions and achievements of student pharmacists. Through the award, students are recognized for their outstanding leadership abilities, community service and outstanding accomplishments.

OSHP solicits applications for the OSHP Scholarship each spring. Scholarships are offered to students who are currently enrolled in a pharmacy degree program and are either a Pharmacy Student Society member (which includes OSHP) or an OSHP member. Only students who will be full-time pharmacy students during the next academic year are eligible. Each year, several $1,500 scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic performance, health care-related work experience, involvement in leadership activities, and community service.

The deadline to submit a student scholarship application is March 11th, 2022.
