Funding Priority

Foster the Success of Tomorrow’s Pharmacy Leaders

We are dedicated to recruiting and preparing the most promising students to become tomorrow’s health-care leaders. Our graduates go on to assume leadership roles in community and independent pharmacies, hospitals, physician offices, clinics, government agencies, public health agencies, pharmaceutical and biotech industries, and academic institutions. With that in mind, we seek to enhance access to learning and to foster the success and prosperity of each student.

    Putting Carolina Within Reach

    Laura Bonifacio ’03, ’05 (Pharm.D.), ’10 (Ph.D.) knows just how important scholarship support can be. She received several scholarships during her time as a student. Now, through the Carolina Annual Pharmacy Scholarship Program, she is enabling current students to follow her.

    “Even beyond the dollars, there’s a huge impact on the students. You are creating a connection with those students. You are saying to them: ‘We see you, we believe in you, we trust you, and you’re doing great things,’” Dr. Bonifacio said.

    Our students graduate with significant debt. And while most qualify for financial aid, only a fraction receive scholarships. Bolstering scholarships and fellowships is essential to retaining and building on our position as leaders in pharmacy education.

    Find out why scholarships are one of our biggest priorities in this campaign.
