Leadership Scholarship



Leadership/Service Scholarship

The Belmont University School of Pharmacy offers competitive scholarship awards to recognize extraordinary commitments to service and examples of leadership among the members of the entering class. This award reflects key values that help to define Belmont University and the School of Pharmacy.

One scholarship of $6,000 ($1,500.00 per year for 4 years) will be awarded to a member of the entering class from among those who apply for consideration, and who meet all requirements.

Scholarship Criteria

     •  The individual selected to receive the scholarship must have demonstrated sustained
          and atypical activity in leadership or service, working to affect positive outcomes in
          the lives of others or their community.

     •  The individual is recognized by others as carrying out these meritorious activities
          without expectation for self-benefit; they are examples of humility and effectiveness.

     •  The individual’s prior activities suggest a commitment to serving/leading others that
          will define a lifelong commitment.

Award Continuity

Each scholarship is awarded over four years. In order for the individual to continue to receive the award for all four years, he or she must continue to demonstrate leadership/service activities, document these activities in the professional portfolio each semester, maintain good academic standing (minimum cumulative GPA of 2.3), and plan the service project for new pharmacy student orientation each year.
