May 1, 2012
Southwestern Oklahoma State University College of Pharmacy student Kara D. Connelly of Kansas City (MO) and associate professor Dr. Erin Callen are one of 75 student/faculty teams across the nation who has been selected for the 2012 American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy/Walmart Scholar Award.
Connelly and Callen will be provided $1,000 scholarships to attend two AACP seminars on July 14-18 in Kissimmee (FL). The scholarship covers 100 percent of Connelly’s registration costs and 50 percent of Callen’s registration costs at the AACP annual meeting. The scholarship also covers registration for both to attend the AACP Teachers Seminar.
This is the eighth year of the AACP/Walmart Scholarship Fund. AACP and Walmart share the commitment to help colleges and schools of pharmacy ensure there are an adequate number of well-prepared individuals who aspire to join the faculties at institutions across the country. The goal of the scholarship program is to strengthen the recipient’s skills and commitment to a career in academic pharmacy through their participation at the AACP annual meeting.
