Pharmacy education assistance

We’re big fans of our pharmacists. After all, pharmacy and the Walgreens brand go way back. That’s why we created programs that are dedicated to supporting you and your education. You can get financial assistance for each year that you are enrolled in pharmacy school. Sure, it’s a big investment. But it’s one we’ve seen pay off in our pharmacists we have throughout the organization that were previous PEAP scholarship recipients.

Professional Educational Assistance Program

The Walgreens Pharmacy Educational Assistance Program (PEAP) provides annual scholarship awards to Walgreens pharmacy interns enrolled in a professional pharmacy program. If the scholarship is granted each year of pharmacy school enrollment, this could amount to $25,000 total.

In exchange for each award, the pharmacy student will be required to sign an agreement that includes a 1-year work commitment as a registered pharmacist at Walgreens. The work commitment is the total number of years a pharmacy student received an award. If you leave before those commitments, you do have to pay back the award. But let's be honest. You're going to love it here.
