Kappa Epsilon Foundation Grants

The Kappa Epsilon Foundation provides individual Kappa Epsilon Members and Chapters with incentive funds for innovative educational programs and projects that focus on the profession of pharmacy.

An initiated Kappa Epsilon Member or a Chartered Chapter in good standing with the Fraternity may apply. There is no deadline to apply or limitation on the number of grants or times a Member or Chapter may apply. The total expenditure for Foundation Grants each fiscal year within the biennium will not exceed $1600. The following Foundation Grants are available for application during each year of the biennium and will be considered and distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Process

All Foundation Grant Applications must have an educational component and focus on the profession of pharmacy. Travel and fuel-related expenditures will not be considered. A Foundation Grant Application may be submitted at any time with no applied deadlines throughout the year. Applicants should allow a two-month turnaround time between the date of submission of the grant request and the subsequent award. Each Foundation Grant Application will be reviewed by the Foundation Officers and Trustees for final approval. Applicants should expect to receive notification of the outcome of their request by email.


Foundation Grant recipients are required to provide a final progress report (one-page synopsis) upon completion of the project or program for which they were awarded. All progress reports should be submitted within 60 days of completion. Completion of the progress reporting requirements will ensure the eligibility of the recipient to apply for renewal grants.

Grant recipients should also prepare a 15″ x 22″ poster on foam-core highlighting the activities and accomplishments for which the Foundation Grant was awarded. Posters should be mailed to the Executive Office and will be displayed at the Kappa Epsilon exhibit booth during the APhA and ASHP Pharmacy Expositions. During odd-numbered years, Foundation Grant activities will also be on display at the National Convention of the Kappa Epsilon Fraternity.

The Bond, Kappa Epsilon’s biannual news publication, will provide announcements of Foundation Grants awarded, the corresponding recipients and a review of the projects and programs for which they were considered.
