First HBCU Travel Awards Granted to Two Student Pharmacists
AMCP and AMCP Foundation are proudly partnering to expand opportunities for students pursuing a PharmD at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Collaborating with AMCP affiliates and leaders who launched this effort, AMCP Foundation created the HBCU Travel Awards Fund to provide grants to HBCU pharmacy students to attend AMCP’s national meetings.
Congratulations to the first recipients of this new travel award! Haseeb Malik and Delyn Owen-Robinson each received a $1,500 award to pay for a one-year AMCP student membership and to defray registration, travel, and lodging expenses to attend AMCP 2023, March 21-24, 2023 in San Antonio, Texas.

Your contribution to our new HBCU Travel Awards Fund will help future leaders like Delyn and Haseeb gain a deeper understanding of the profession. Together, we can invest in future pharmacists and promote diversity and inclusivity in managed care pharmacy.
AMCP Foundation is grateful to our donors, and to the six AMCP affiliates that provided a portion of the initial program funding. Thank you, AMCP affiliates!
