UNE Receives Grant to Support Diversity in Pharmacy Program
"The University of New England, with generous support from Hannaford and Covetrus, is pleased to announce $150,000 in scholarship and research funding to UNE’s School of Pharmacy to advance diversity within Maine’s pharmacy workforce as well as in the pharmacy profession. These notable donations complement UNE’s strategic efforts to enhance diversity in its health professions programs. The Hannaford Pharmacy Diversity Scholarship will be awarded to diverse students enrolled in the School of Pharmacy, with a preference for those in the Advanced Standing Track (AST) for Foreign-Trained Pharmacists. The AST provides an accelerated degree path for students who were previously educated abroad, offering the opportunity to earn a Doctor of Pharmacy degree (Pharm. D.) in three years and position the graduate to achieve licensure in the United States." Read more here.
