Selection for the award is a separate process from applying for admission to the graduate school, although that graduate studies committee owns the process and could adapt or personalize it as necessary.
No more than two students per professional year selected for the award.
Tuition remission/scholarship award will be available starting the third professional year. Two reasons: First, there is a track record of performance in the professional program to judge their academic abilities. Second, we want the financial exposure of the College limited to 6 – 8 students; so up to four students in the professional program and up to four with their Pharm.D., but have not yet taken prelims.
It is a loan, forgiven only after completing their prelims with an OSU faculty member. Students will be taxed on the award when it is forgiven. Students need to be aware of their risk.
The value of the loan is somewhat flexible and on the Word version of Loan app there is a spot to enter the initial annual value. It is approximately the difference in the cost of Graduate vs Pharm.D tuition.
Yes, It is important to remember that the intent is to treat them as a new graduate student in their first year after they get their Pharm.D., which basically assures them of a first year GTA (they are not eligible for a GTA while a professional student).
