LEXINGTON, Ky. (October 19, 2020) - The University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy will host a virtual Open House for prospective graduate students at 4:00 p.m. EDT on Thursday, October 29, 2020.

Prospective students will have a chance to discuss the opportunities for graduate study in pharmaceutical sciences and hear directly from students in the nationally-ranked program. The Open House will begin with an hour of presentations by current graduate students describing their academic backgrounds and research projects followed by an informal question and answer session with the College of Pharmacy students and faculty.

Attendees will also receive information about academic requirements for entry into the program and how to submit a competitive application. The College of Pharmacy offers stipend support, paid tuition, and health insurance for those admitted into the program.

“It’s a unique opportunity for prospective students to hear how a degree in pharmaceutical sciences is incredibly versatile and applicable to those interested in science careers. I think attendees will find that there’s something for everyone from students majoring in the basic sciences to those interested in public policy,” said Dave Feola, UK College of Pharmacy Professor and Director of Graduate Studies.

The Open House will be especially useful for students who are currently a junior or senior majoring in Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, or the Social Sciences and who have a GPA of 3.0 or higher.


Register for our upcoming Graduate Student Open House on October 29, 2020, at 4:00 p.m. You will need to have Zoom capabilities to attend.


We wish to remember and honor those who inhabited this Commonwealth before the arrival of the Europeans. Briefly occupying these lands were the Osage, Wyndott tribe, and Miami peoples. The Adena and Hopewell peoples, who are recognized by the naming of the time period in which they resided here, were here more permanently. Some of their mounds remain in the Lexington area, including at UK’s Adena Park.

In more recent years, the Cherokee occupied southeast Kentucky, the Yuchi southwest Kentucky, the Chickasaw extreme western Kentucky and the Shawnee central Kentucky including what is now the city of Lexington. The Shawnee left when colonization pushed through the Appalachian Mountains. Lower Shawnee Town ceremonial grounds are still visible in Greenup County.

We honor the first inhabitants who were here, respect their culture, and acknowledge the presence of their descendants who are here today in all walks of life including fellow pharmacists and healthcare professionals.
