AASHP Scholarship Awarded / Request for DonationsWe are also pleased to announce that the AASHP scholarship was awarded by the TSHP Research and Education Foundation Scholarship Committee to Mohammad Adil of the University of Texas College of Pharmacy. Mohammad has served this past year as the student liaison to AASHP from the UT Student Society of Health System Pharmacists. Congratulations Mohammad Adil!!
We will need to conduct a fund raising drive to get the AASHP scholarship with the TSHP Research and Education Foundation up to a $30,000 endowment. The market investments are not giving a high enough rate of return to provide a $1000 scholarship at the current endowment level. Therefore, the TSHP Research and Education Foundation Board of Directors has set the endowment level at $30,000. We are currently at $22,000 plus.
