Graduate students are at the heart of our leading innovations and most impactful work — from developing models for value assessment in pharmaceuticals, to evaluating government policies and programs like the Generic Drug User Fee Act (GDUFA) to literally writing the textbook on drug-drug interactions. They are the inspired researchers who propel the University of Washington School of Pharmacy forward through tireless inquiry and exploration.
The future vitality and reputation of the University of Washington School of Pharmacy hinges on our ability to attract the most sought-after graduate students and fellowship candidates from around the world. Our challenge? Top public and private peers are looking to recruit these same stellar graduate students and are often better-positioned given robust graduate support funding. To maintain and elevate our institutional excellence in the years to come, we need enhanced resources for strategic recruitment and retention.
Many of our faculty have established endowed funds to provide key funding to graduate students when state resources fell short. We now call on our passionate alumni and friends to rise to the challenge of elevating these funds to $100k and support our graduate students. Together, we can ensure the graduate program legacy of the University of Washington School of Pharmacy will continue to grow and thrive for years to come.
