Ohio Northern University, Walmart establish endowed leadership scholarship
Ohio Northern University has established the Walmart and Sam’s Club Endowed Leadership Scholarship Fund for the Rudolph H. Raabe College of Pharmacy.
The scholarship will be awarded to academically eligible ONU pharmacy students entering their fourth, fifth or sixth year of pharmacy studies who have demonstrated leadership in pharmacy or to an ONU student organization and have shown interest in community pharmacy.
“We’re very appreciative of our partnership with the Walmart team,” said Jon Sprague, dean of the College of Pharmacy. “Walmart’s endowed scholarship will provide much-needed support to current and future pharmacy students focused on community pharmacy. The scholarship also will provide great reinforcement for our mutual message to students on the importance of developing their leadership skills in impacting their current educational experience to serve as the future leaders in community pharmacy.”
The newly established scholarship will be awarded during the 2013-14 academic school year.
Ami Bhatt, Walmart’s director of talent acquisitions and professional relations for health and wellness, said, “Ohio Northern has a long tradition of excellence in preparing students to serve the profession in community pharmacy, and we welcome the opportunity provide support for their educational endeavors and leadership development.”
