All information must be submitted via the Pharmacists Mutual website at www.phmic.com/scholarship. The application deadline is December 1, 2016. A Pharmacists Mutual panel will review the scholarship applications to select the recipient(s). Up to twenty scholarships nationwide will be awarded. Each recipient will receive $2500. If a scholarship is awarded to one or more students from your school, they will be notified by mid-March.
