The SAPA Scholarship and Excellence in Education Program (the “SAPA Scholarship”) was established by the Sino-American Pharmaceutical Professionals Association (SAPA) in 1999. Founded in 1993, SAPA is a nonprofit tax-exempt professional organization headquartered in the tri-state (NJ-NY-CT) area and has become a major pharmaceutical professional organization with more than 6,000 members and 6 Chapters in the U.S. and China.
The primary purpose of SAPA Scholarship is to recognize and support educational excellence achieved by outstanding high school students, and to encourage the finest high school graduates to develop careers in life sciences.
SAPA will award undergraduate scholarships to selected candidates, known as SAPA Scholars, in October each year for use during their college freshman year. The awards will be made on the basis of merits to those who have outstanding potential and intend to pursue careers in life sciences.
Each scholarship awards a one-time fund of $1,000 towards tuition payment. The Scholarship is merit-based and open to national competition. SAPA intends to award the Scholarship to at least two (2) qualified candidates each year. Applicants for the SAPA Scholarship must include in their application materials a statement of interest in pursuing a career related to life sciences.
