Giving Priorities

Dean’s Excellence Fund

This fund fuels the college’s highest priorities. The dean relies upon this crucial resource to help recruit and retain high-quality faculty, equip our college with up-to-date technology, and assist students in their professional development through seminars and outreach activities.

Give to the Dean’s Excellence Fund

Rural Health Initiative

Lack of health care affects all of us – when those that grow and supply the country, with food, but are unable to seek the most basic care for themselves, we are all impacted. The Rural Health Initiative replenishes pharmacy deserts with the most accessible care provider: the pharmacist.

Give to the Rural Health Initiative

Pharmacy Alumni Scholarship Fund

Help us attract the best and brightest. Through generous scholarships, we can ensure that promising students will uphold the Coug pharmacist reputation. Your contribution reduces the financial burden on students so they can focus on what’s important: becoming health care leaders.

Give to the Pharmacy Alumni Scholarship Fund

The Student Travel Fund allows WSU student pharmacists to travel to conference such as the American Pharmacy Association Annual Meeting.
Pharmacy Student Professional Travel Fund

Networking and learning from professional pharmacists at conferences, legislative trips, and competitions put our students ahead of the pack. Help students travel to these opportunities for the chance to advocate for the profession, and build connections they need to succeed.
