Texas Pharmacy Foundation Ladies Auxiliary Scholarship 

The Texas Pharmacy Foundation (TPF) offers the Ladies Auxiliary Scholarship in the amount of $1,000 to a student pursuing a career in pharmacy at an accredited Texas school or college of pharmacy.

Background
Women compromise a majority of the students in most pharmacy schools around the country today.  But in the early days of the Texas Pharmacy Association (TPA), women primarily cared for the family and supported their husbands, including the pharmacists who founded this Association. In 1913, the wives of the TPA members formed the ladies Auxiliary.  The Auxiliary began as an organization to promote sociability among members, assist TPA with social programming, and strengthen the Texas pharmacy community.  The affiliation of TPA with APhA in 1965 structured the local associations across the state, which also spawned the growth of ladies auxiliaries across the state.   The common goal was promoting pharmacy and helping communities become aware of the enormous educational service that pharmacists could bring to schools, civic groups and health-related organizations. Through the years, local auxiliaries met frequently and documented their activities with yearbooks and scrapbooks that their members entered into competitions with other auxiliaries. Local Texas auxiliaries embraced “Little Jill” poison prevention puppet shows.  The activity was fun and grew like wildfire, expanding the visibility of pharmacy through the country. “Little Jill” soon had her own coloring book and received proclamations from mayors, the Texas legislature and even appeared before the House of Delegates at APhA. The Auxiliary redefined itself in 1999 in an effort to better reflect its purpose and membership.  As more women entered the pharmacy profession, the Auxiliary encouraged male spouses to join.  In 2013 the Auxiliary celebrated its 100th anniversary. After 100 years, the Auxiliary Board of Directors made the decision to disband the Auxiliary and contribute its funds to the Texas Pharmacy Foundation for the purpose of awarding an annual student scholarship.

Eligibility Criteria
Pharmacy students entering their second (P2), third (P3) or fourth (P4) professional year in the fall of 2018 with a minimum GPA of 2.5 on a scale of 4.0 in required courses are eligible.  In addition, the applicant must be a student member of the Texas Pharmacy Association.  Students will be judged on scholarship need and the potential to become a leader for Texas pharmacy, as demonstrated by involvement in pharmacy school as well as community activities that were so important to the Auxiliary.
