The CPNP Foundation is proud to announce the continued funding of student registration and travel grants to CPNP’s annual meeting. Thanks to CPNP Foundation donors, the number of grants available for CPNP 2020 has increased, and the Foundation will provide scholarships for up to 25 students to attend the Annual Meeting April 26-29, 2020 in Dallas, Texas!
CPNP Foundation President Cindy Kirkwood extended her appreciation by saying, “The CPNP Foundation Board of Directors is very grateful to the CPNP members and CPNP Past Presidents who made these grants possible. With your generous support, we can continue to support the next generation of psychiatric pharmacists and grow our discipline. On behalf of the CPNP Foundation, thank you so much!”
The online application portal is open for applications with the final deadline to submit an application being January 15, 2020. To be eligible, applicants must be a full-time pharmacy student in pursuit of her/his first professional pharmacy degree, a paid student member of CPNP in good standing, and must not have previously received this grant. Students applying for a registration/travel grant must complete an online application and provide a current curriculum vitae; a personal essay of no more than 500 words describing the applicant's interest in CPNP and psychiatric pharmacy, including objectives for attending the meeting; and one letter of recommendation from either a clinical pharmacy practitioner or faculty member using the Letter of Recommendation template. A full list of grant criteria can be found online.
The CPNP Student Committee will facilitate the grant selection process after the application deadline, and notifications will be sent by February 12, 2020. Each student recipient will receive a full student registration to the 2020 CPNP Annual Meeting ($300 value) and a $200 travel stipend. These grants are possible because of the generous support of CPNP members and the CPNP Past Presidents’ Destiny Fund, which specifically supports student registration and travel grants.
