**********

Applying and being accepted into a pharmacy program are achievements worth celebrating. The TUC College of Pharmacy offers a number of scholarships to recognize your accomplishments.

When you decide to attend the TUC College of Pharmacy, you join our pharmacy family of students, faculty and staff – your new pharmily.  As a member of our pharmily, you may be eligible for Scholastic Achievement Scholarships, Founders Scholarships, and PEACE Scholarships.

Scholastic Achievement Scholarships

In recognition of the hard work pharmacy applicants put into their studies, our newest pharmily members are eligible, with no application, for three levels of scholastic achievement scholarships. Scholastic Achievement Scholarships may be combined for total awards ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 based on applicant qualifications. These scholarships will be automatically awarded upon matriculation, with half being applied toward the Fall tuition and half being applied toward the Spring tuition.

  • Touro Pharmily Scholarship ($1,000)

This scholarship will be awarded to all students who matriculate into the Class of 2023. There are no eligibility requirements.

  • Pharmacy Scholar ($1,000)

Upon matriculation into the Class of 2023, this scholarship will be awarded to any student with a pre-pharmacy school cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better at the time of matriculation.

  • Distinguished Pharmacy Scholar ($1,000)

Upon matriculation into the Class of 2023, this scholarship will be awarded to any student with a pre-pharmacy school cumulative GPA of 3.5 or better at the time of matriculation.

Founders Scholarships

Who you are is just as important to our pharmily as what grades you have earned in classes. The Founders Scholarship recognizes your potential to live our mission as a future pharmacist who will positively impact the patients and communities we serve.  Eligibility for this award is based on holistic criteria considered during the interview process, including academic preparedness, evidence of service, care giving and altruism, non-verbal and verbal communication skills, and mathematical ability. If awarded, this scholarship will be automatically activated upon matriculation, with half being applied toward the Fall tuition and half being applied toward the Spring tuition.

To apply for the Founders Scholarship:

Professional Excellence, Achievement, and Community Empowerment (PEACE) Scholarships

PEACE scholarships are awarded to pharmily members who embody our vision to serve, to lead, and to teach which is rooted in our core values of Professional Excellence, Achievement, and Community Empowerment. PEACE Scholarships are competitive awards ranging from $1,000 to $10,000. 

Incoming members of the Class of 2023 may apply for any number of PEACE scholarships. In the event a student applies and qualifies for multiple PEACE scholarships, only the scholarship with the highest dollar amount will be awarded. If awarded, scholarships will be automatically activated upon matriculation, with half being applied toward the Fall tuition and half being applied toward the Spring tuition.

Application Process for PEACE Scholarships

To apply for any of the PEACE Scholarships, applicants must submit the following items to Mr. Anthony Williams (Anthony.williams@tu.edu):

  • A one page essay describing how you satisfy the specific PEACE scholarship eligibility criteria and what this scholarship means for you. Please note that a separate essay is required for each PEACE scholarship. The essay must be single-spaced, Times New Roman font size 12, 1" margin.
  • For the Dean’s Scholarship or Diversity Scholarship only:  One letter of recommendation supporting your qualifications for the award.  Although you may specify a letter already submitted through PharmCAS for this purpose, it is highly recommended that a new letter that specifically addresses the review criteria be submitted to optimally convey your qualification for these larger awards. Letters of recommendation may not be from relatives and should be e-mailed from the reference writer directly to Mr. Tony Williams (Anthony.williams@tu.edu ).

In addition, the review committee will consider relevant information from your PharmCAS application for the PEACE scholarships (no need to resubmit).
