College of Pharmacy Receives Scholarship Funding

The University of New Mexico College of Pharmacy is one of 13 pharmacy schools from across the nation selected to receive funding from the new, $1.1 million Cardinal Health Pharmacy Scholarship Program.

The universities that were selected to participate in the scholarship program offer strong nuclear, independent or hospital pharmacy curricula. Each school received an endowed scholarship ranging from $50,000 to $125,000.

“Cardinal Health serves more than 7,000 community pharmacists across the country, and we’re one of the nation’s largest employers of nuclear and hospital pharmacists,” said Mike Kaufmann, chief executive officer of Cardinal Health’s Pharmaceutical segment. “We passionately believe in the essential role pharmacists play in making sure patients receive safe, high quality health care. That’s why we’re proud to partner with the UNM College of Pharmacy to invest in developing tomorrow’s pharmacy leaders.”

“I cannot express my appreciation enough to Cardinal Health for endowing this scholarship for our students,” said Donald Godwin, Pharm.D., interim dean for UNM College of Pharmacy. “Their generosity will provide students with funds to subsidize travel costs as they complete the experiential portion of their nuclear pharmacy education.”
