The Good Neighbor Pharmacy Scholarship
Live application window: October 3, 2022 through November 14, 2022 3:00 pm CT

The AmerisourceBergen Foundation has established a scholarship program to assist current undergraduate or graduate students planning to attend a Historically Black College or University (HBCU) and plan to pursue a Pharmacy Doctorate Degree.

The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarships and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.

Applicants to The Good Neighbor Pharmacy Scholarship must:

  • Self-identify as Black or African American
  • Be current college undergraduate or graduate students
  • Plan to enroll in full-time undergraduate or graduate study at an accredited HBCU college/university for the entire upcoming academic year
  • Be pursuing a Pharmacy Doctorate Degree
  • Have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent)

Employees and children of employees of AmerisourceBergen are not eligible.


If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $25,000 award. Up to four (4) awards will be granted.

Awards are renewable up to three years or until a Doctorate degree is earned, whichever occurs first, on the basis of satisfactory academic performance (maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale), and full-time enrollment.

Awards are for undergraduate study and graduate study.


All applicants will be notified in January.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of The AmerisourceBergen Foundation. Payments are made in one installment in early August.
