What is a RESPy Award?

The RESPy Award began as a recognition of extraordinary humanitarian work in the community, and has become a continuing way of saluting the service of pharmacy students all over the country.

  • $1,000 scholarship
  • A full-page featured article about their service and commitment to the profession in Pharmacy Times®
  • One of a kind, hand-crafted mortar and pestle
  • Invitation to the Walmart pharmacy intern program
