MSJC Student Earns Walgreens Pharmacy Technician Scholarship
MSJC student Kelsey Lee has been awarded a $130 scholarship to cover the cost of the Pharmacy Technician Certification exam fee from Walgreens and Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) Honor Society.
The Walgreens Pharmacy Technician Certification Scholarship recognizes PTK members who are enrolled in Allied Health or Pharmacy Technician programs and intend to take the Pharmacy Technician Certification exam. Lee is one of 30 students selected to receive this award.
The scholarship application is open year-round, and winners are selected twice a year, in the spring and the fall. Up to 65 awards are given each year.
“We are excited about the opportunity to partner with Walgreens to offer career opportunities and scholarships to our members,” said Dr. Monica Marlowe, Executive Director of the Phi Theta Kappa Foundation.
“Certification exam costs often create a financial barrier for students that hinders their ability to enter the workforce. We are grateful to Walgreens for addressing these challenges and providing a pathway to great career opportunities. Congratulations to the winners!”
