Thirty donors, including multiple CPNP Past Presidents, contributed to the registration and travel scholarships awarded to 20 students to attend the 2018 CPNP Annual Meeting in Indianapolis, Indiana. Generous contributions like these support the future of psychiatric pharmacy and show commitment to improving the care of patients living with psychiatric, neurologic, and substance use disorders. The CPNP Foundation thanks all of its donors for their generosity. Many of the student recipients passed along their thanks as well! We have included a few emails and thank you notes below.

I want to personally thank you for your generous donation to the student grant program. Because of the financial support you and other donors provided, I have been awarded a student registration grant supporting my attendance at the 2018 CPNP Annual Meeting. I am so grateful for this contribution you made toward my future in psychiatric pharmacy through this great educational opportunity. I am currently a 4th-year student attending the Medical University of South Carolina with the goals of completing a general PGY-1 pharmacy practice residency in which I can further build on by completing a PGY-2 in psychiatry. Therefore, I truly believe attendance and participation at this year's CPNP Annual Meeting is the next step in my progression towards becoming an involved member of the psychiatric pharmacy community. Specifically, I believe the student programming, research topics, and networking opportunities will be of the utmost value to me. As I strive to become a clinician within psychiatric pharmacy, I have made it a point to further my interest in psychiatry by completing an APPE rotation in psychiatry and presenting on multiple occasions about psychiatric topics. I look forward to building on my past experiences by participating in the events included at this meeting.
I am a fourth-year student at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Pharmacy. I want to personally thank you for your donation to the student grant program for the CPNP conference. With the financial support that you and other donors provided, I have been awarded a student registration grant supporting my attendance at CPNP 2018. As a student who is extremely passionate about psychiatry, I am extremely grateful for the contribution you are making toward my future and the future of the psychiatric pharmacy profession through this great educational opportunity. I hope to pursue a PGY2 in psychiatric pharmacy after the completion of a foundational PGY1 starting in June. Going to this conference will allow me the opportunity to learn about issues prevalent in psychiatry and to network with my future fellow colleagues. Our university just recently approved a student chapter for CPNP, so being able to attend the national conference means a lot. Thank you so much!
