Pharmaceutical Society of South Africa/ FPE Bursaries 2021 – 2022

Pharmaceutical Society of South Africa/ FPE Bursaries

ABOUT THE COMPANY – PSSA

The history of the South African Pharmaceutical Association (PSSA) dates back to 1885 when a team of 7 pharmacists met in King Williamstown.
Since the meeting, branches were formed across the country and various pharmaceutical societies were developed. However, it wasn’t until the year 1946 that the Pharmaceutical Society of South Africa (PPSA) was formed, as the result of the amalgamation of all the societies.

Today, the PSSA’s vision and mission are to be the countries leader of the pharmacy profession, as well as to provide support for the pharmacy profession by way of improving the use of medication and greater patient care.
 

ABOUT THE BURSARY PROGRAMMES

Every year, the Foundation for Pharmaceutical Education (FPE) invite Undergraduate and Postgraduate Pharmacy students, to apply for their bursary. The bursary is administered by the Pharmaceutical Society of South Africa (PSSA).

 

The Undergraduate bursary will be awarded to BPharm pharmacy students who are in their 2nd or subsequent year of study. The bursary is awarded for 1 academic year at a time – a new application must be submitted each year for a bursary renewal.

The Postgraduate bursary is for Masters and Doctoral students pursuing their studies within Pharmacy related subjects. The bursary is awarded for 1 academic year at a time – a new application must be submitted each year for a bursary renewal. Candidates are selected based on 2 criteria: project viability and academic potential (which counts for 60%) and financial need (which counts for 40%).
