The $1,000 scholarships will cover registration and other expenses for VCU pharmacy students Casey L. Boyer and Jacob Ellerbrock to attend and participate in the annual meeting and seminars of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy in Boston this July.

Walmart offers 85 of the scholarships each year to pharmacy students nationwide. The scholarships support AACP’s efforts to strengthen pharmacy students’ “skills and commitment to a career in academic pharmacy,” according to the association’s scholarship page.

Boyer’s faculty mentor is David Holdford, Ph.D.; Ellerbrock’s is Lauren Caldas, Pharm.D.
