2022 Summer Internship Application

The National Community Pharmacists Association and the NCPA Foundation are pleased to sponsor the NCPA Summer Internship Program. This Program provides a pharmacy student with an excellent opportunity to experience life at a national association, while also learning more about the many opportunities that exist in independent community pharmacy practice. While this 10-week program is usually conducted at NCPA headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia, we will make a determination as we get closer to the start date as to whether it will be virtual, and possibly shorter in length. The NCPA Foundation provides a housing stipend for your 10 week internship (this may be prorated if the internship time is shortened).

Applications for the NCPA Summer Internship Program must be received by December 31.

(1) Enrolled in a full-time undergraduate pharmacy program in pursuit of a first professional pharmacy degree.
(2) A minimum of a 2.5 cumulative grade point average at an accredited or candidate status domestic School or College of Pharmacy.
