Investing in Tomorrow’s Healthcare Providers

Since its inception in 2013, the NCPDP Foundation has awarded a total of $131,000 in scholarship funds. Our goal is to support students who are seeking to learn more about pharmacy’s role in information technology, and information technology’s role in improving patient safety and health outcomes, and who attends a school that supports health information exchange or other pharmacy technology initiatives.

The 2018 scholarships were awarded to three colleges of pharmacy, with honorariums given to two colleges of pharmacy:

  • Midwestern University Chicago College of Pharmacy
  • University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences College of Pharmacy
  • University of Florida College of Pharmacy
  • St. John Fisher College – Wegmans School of Pharmacy (honorarium)
  • St. Louis College of Pharmacy (honorarium)

"This scholarship has had a great personal and academic impact on me. Prior to receiving this award I was content with simply accepting a job in an outpatient pharmacy, but this acknowledgement has reinvigorated my desire to go into a residency and join an informatics team."
