Financial Aid and Scholarships

KU School of Pharmacy Scholarships

Thanks to the generosity of our alumni, donors and KU Endowment, the School of Pharmacy will award approximately $700,000 in scholarships and grants to Pharm.D. students for the upcoming academic year.

Academic performance and financial need are two important determinants of Scholarships and Awards.
