In 1942, visionary pharmaceutical leaders of the National Drug Trade Conference (NDTC) organized the American Foundation for Pharmaceutical Education (AFPE) and unanimously endorsed its incorporation as an independent foundation to operate in perpetuity to advance and support pharmaceutical education in the United States. AFPE stands as the nation's oldest and largest pharmacy foundation.

Now for more than 70 years, AFPE has provided fellowships, scholarships, and grants to help educate thousands of the very best and brightest students in the pharmaceutical sciences in preparation for distinguished careers in industry and academia.
