MPSP scholars can take advantage of enhanced faculty advising, peer support and social opportunities for a more enriching academic experience.

"I would like to thank MSP for the generous travel scholarship for the National Community Pharmacists Association 2018 National Convention. The trip was very rewarding and I cannot express enough how beneficial this convention was toward my educational and professional career in pharmacy. I would characterize my experience as educational, empowering and motivating."
