- Student Member Benefits
Network and build relationships with other students, professors and pharmacy professionals at several SCPhA networking events throughout the year.

When students are approaching graduation, our Career Center is a great resource to browse current job openings and post their resumes.
Junior Board Member Program
Student members have the opportunity to gain great experience by serving on SCPhA’s Junior Board.
Student Events & Scholarships
One of the most valuable benefits of SCPhA membership is the opportunity to network with colleagues at events. Registration can be pricey, which is why SCPhA and the South Carolina Pharmacy Foundation provide scholarships for deserving pharmacy students. Scholarships are also provided by other SCPhA members who love giving back and supporting pharmacy students.
- Student Scholarship Details
Scholarships are available for SCPhA’s Annual Convention, and the Southeastern Pharmacy Leadership Weekend. Students may apply to one, or both, as they are not limited to receiving only one scholarship.
PLEASE NOTE: Scholarships only cover the cost of event registration. Students will still be financially responsible for the cost of lodging and any meals not mentioned in registration costs.
Scholarships must be submitted no later than 6 weeks prior to the date of the event. Exact deadline dates TBD.
Junior Board Member Program
SCPhA offers pharmacy students the opportunity to learn the ropes of being a leader in the profession through our Junior Board Member program, where students will be matched with a mentor from the SCPhA Board of Directors and gain invaluable experience in association activities.
