Student Community Engaged Service Award 

The Student Community Engaged Service Awards recognize student-led community engagement projects conducted either as a component of the curriculum or as an extra-curricular program. The most outstanding student-directed program at a college or school of pharmacy should be submitted. Service learning is included in pharmacy college/school curricula and identified as a needed curriculum component by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education. Because it is a structured learning experience, often experiential in nature, it lends itself well to a wide range of community-connected projects and outcomes evaluation.

The program is intended to encourage student pharmacists and faculty to design and build programs of community-engaged service learning, delivering consumer education about medication use, expanding access to affordable medications and improving public health. An important corollary benefit of these programs is better educating pharmacy college/school faculty and students on the contemporary issues of consumerism and access to affordable healthcare and medication therapy.

Four (4) national awards will be given. Each national award will consist of the following:

  • a Tiffany & Co. Shooting Star for the Pharmacy College/School Dean, and plaques for faculty and up to 5 students;
  • $10,000 to Pharmacy Dean’s office to be used exclusively to support program expansion of recognized or new community engaged service projects;
  • Up to $2,500 to cover travel, lodging, and registration expenses for one designated student and one Faculty Advisor to attend the national awards ceremony at AACP’s 2013 Annual Meeting and present their projects in a special session and explain their impact on the community (i.e., the $2,500 is to cover both the student’s and advisor’s expenses);
  • $1,000 for the faculty advisor; and
  • $5,000 team prize to be administered for participating students to be used for enhancing/sustaining the program being recognized, or for travel support (travel, hotel, registration) for student(s) to attend and present their projects at a professional meeting.

Please direct questions to Melinda D. Colón, associate director of governance programs and meetings.
