Leaders Creating Leaders for Tomorrow


The Harrison College of Pharmacy awards scholarships that are funded through endowments and gifts. There are no full scholarships to the Doctor of Pharmacy program. The limited funds are distributed among as many students as possible. Scholarships are awarded based upon: Academic Merit, Leadership Merit, and Financial Need.

Students must apply through the Auburn University Scholarship Opportunity Manager (AUSOM) each year to receive consideration for university-wide and Harrison College of Pharmacy scholarships. AUSOM’s online features and benefits allow students to search, review requirements, apply and accept awards for available scholarship opportunities, all within one easy-to-use site.

Students who have not yet been admitted to HCOP should not concern themselves with this process. HCOP personnel are not able to give an indication of what financial assistance a student or potential student might expect to receive, as every case is different and as the amount of funds available changes each year.

For additional information or questions regarding pharmacy scholarships, contact Charlotte Cheatham, Coordinator of Student Services, at ccc0010@auburn.edu.

Auburn University and the Harrison College of Pharmacy are grateful to the donors for their generosity.

For information on giving to a scholarship or creating a scholarship or endowment, please contact the Harrison College of Pharmacy Office of Development & Alumni Affairs.
