AFPE is excited to announce a the Pre-Doctoral Fellowship in Health Outcome Disparities for a pre-doctoral student whose research focuses on either a disease area which disproportionately impacts underserved populations, or whose research focuses on reducing healthcare disparities and improving health outcomes for underserved populations in the United States. Examples of this research could include: sickle-cell anemia, asthma, HIV/AIDS, maternal and infant mortality, access to medication, etc.

Applicants to this award who are not selected will automatically be considered for a Pre-Doctoral Award in Pharmaceutical Sciences. The same eligibility requirements and deadlines apply for both awards.

Please note: AFPE will only review a total of five applications for the pre-doctoral fellowships. Students should consult their Dean and faculty prior to application. Please contact Sarah Devereaux-Hardimon, Development Associate, at hardimon@afpepharm.org with any questions. 


The Pre-Doc Applications open November 6th.
