How this innovative program came to fruition with Dean Peterson
We are delighted to announce the University of Utah College of Pharmacy’s First Year Free Program. Beginning in 2023, students entering the program from everywhere will have the opportunity to take advantage of this unique initiative.
Through the contributions of generous donors and with the support of the University, every accepted student will receive a scholarship that covers their full first-year tuition. This is NOT a deferred payment plan. As the name implies, every accepted member of our PharmD program, who start their first semester in the Fall of 2023, will receive a full-tuition scholarship. Please note: This does not include housing, food, or other non-tuition expenses.
This new scholarship program will increase both the access and affordability of pharmacy education and allow our first-year students to focus on their studies and overall college experience at the U, with fewer financial stresses.
