The primary goal of the AFPE Fellowship program is to identify and support those students who have the potential to become leaders in the pharmaceutical profession. The selection process encompasses not only an examination of academic achievement (e.g., grades), but also accomplishments that reflect the stature of the "total individual." While the nature of the research project or dissertation and the research skills of the student are very important, many other factors are also considered. Funds provided for AFPE Fellowships are gifts from the American Foundation for Pharmaceutical Education. AFPE Fellowship recipients are not legally obligated to repay the amount provided to them, but they are strongly urged to support the foundation when they are able to with their personal contributions as members of the AFPE 21st Century Club, or in some other manner. In this way the foundation will be able to continue the Pre-Doctoral Fellowships Program and thereby help fulfill tomorrow's needs for highly competent teachers, scientists and industry leaders. Applicants will be notified by mail of the decisions by the Board of Grants during the spring semester, and fellowships start on Sept. 1.
