West Texas Pharmacy Association is one of the oldest pharmacy associations in the State of Texas. The association was organized in 1921 to promote pharmacy in West Texas. West Texas pharmacists recognized the need to retain our West Texas students. Many were not returning to West Texas because there was more opportunity for them in larger cities around the state. The association has made its primary goal to offer scholarships to pharmacy students that are interested in pursuing their profession in West Texas. This program has been hugely successful. WTPA works directly with employers and pharmacy schools to create excellent opportunities for these students in West Texas. In addition, WTPA offers a professional, non-political fellowship atmosphere with many opportunities for continuing education for its 500 plus membership.
West Texas Pharmacy Association operates as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and accepts tax deductible contributions to fund scholarships to qualified pharmacy students. Our endowment program creates many scholarships annually and provides a way for companies, individuals and families to create an enduring legacy.
We invite any pharmacy students that have an interest in practicing in West Texas to visit the scholarship page of this website to learn about our offerings. Anyone who is interested in WTPA membership or any of our other activities may call our main number or contact any board member listed on the about us tab.
