Thesis/Dissertation Data Collection Grants

The CPMM provides support of up to $3,000 for primary data collection related to thesis and dissertation projects conducted by graduate students in the Department of Pharmacy Administration. Students are required to work with their thesis/dissertation director to first attempt to acquire external funding for the project. If adequate funding cannot be obtained from external sources, a student may request support from the CPMM with the approval of the faculty chairing the student’s committee.
