The NPPA Scholarship Program for Under-Funded Buyer-Facilities was instituted in order to help Pharmacy Buyers whose facilities will not pay for or reimburse, their expenses to attend the NPPA Educational Conference (whose sole focus is courses related to the ins & outs of Pharmacy Purchasing); and for those who demonstrate that paying for those expenses on their own is a financial hardship. The Scholarship Program is funded mainly through the generous contributions that are sponsored by some of the NPPA Conference Exhibiting Vendors (see below for the current year’s Sponsors).
The maximum allowed Scholarship award per applicant for the Annual NPPA Conference is: 1 Buyer-Attendee Registration Fee (regardless of NPPA membership status), and up to 3 Conference Headquarters Hotel Room Nights (not including tax + incidentals), at the NPPA Group Room rate.
Additional Ideas For Funding Assistance
Nominate yourself for consideration in NPPA’s Outstanding Buyer of the Year Award Program, which awards the top 3 placement winners in cash prizes between $200-$1,000 to help fund your education & travel costs.
Ask for help from your GPO rep and the Vendors that call on you (such reps can put their credit card information on your Order Form so that they are paying us, as an educational benefit, instead of you directly).
Refer an NPPA Exhibiting Vendor, and get rewarded for your efforts! See details on our web page for Member Incentive Programs.
Offer to speak at the Conference, even for a brief 15 minute panel session. Accepted presenters get at least registration and/or up to 4 hotel nights reimbursed, with additional expenses & honorarium negotiable. Send your inquiry and topic idea to: Speakers@PharmacyPurchasing.com.
