Re:      NASPA/Merck Grant 2007

I am pleased to announce the continuation of the NASPA/Merck State Pharmacy Association Grant Program.  We are grateful to Merck and Dave Miller, Director of Pharmacy Affairs, for making this grant program possible once again.  The Grant Program is designed to allow state associations to undertake significant projects of value to state associations and the profession of pharmacy which otherwise might not be accomplished.

The total grant amount is $50,000.  The maximum amount a state can receive is $15,000 for a project proposal.  Please note that the NASPA Executive Committee may withhold a portion of the total grant for a “special grant project” which would be announced later this year.

I will again be administering the activities for the Grant Program.  I will work closely with the NASPA Grant Review Committee to coordinate all Grant Program activities and application queries.

The attached pages outline the instructions and guidelines for submitting your application. Please note the “Proposal Structure” section of the Program Guidelines.  Also attached is a sample list of past projects that were accepted.  I hope they will inspire you to submit applications. The application deadline is Friday, February 2, 2007

The Grant Review Committee, the Executive Directors from last year’s grant recipients: Mindy Rasmussen and Patricia Epple will review the applications and select the recipients for the 2007 grants.  The successful applicants will be announced at the NASPA meeting in March 2007 in Atlanta, GA.  Applications must be emailed to by February 2, 2007 .

I look forward to working with you on the grant program.  If you have any questions, please call me at 805-682-5340 or email:
