Entrepreneurial Opportunities Group

Helping Pharmacy Students Pursue Careers in Independent Pharmacy


The EOG was formed to help promote the advantages and opportunities available in independent pharmacy practice to University of Kansas pharmacy students. The EOG is made up of experienced Kansas independent pharmacy practitioners, the Currus CEO, and a representative of the KU School of Pharmacy (to act as a liaison with the school).


  • Helps students understand and gain interest in independent pharmacy

  • Identifies independent pharmacists as information resources

  • Complements activities organized by the KU School of Pharmacy related to independent pharmacy opportunities

  • Identifies potential entrepreneurs from KU pharmacy student population

  • Provides ongoing guidance to potential entrepreneurs


Each year the EOG initiative provides scholarships to University of Kansas School of Pharmacy students who have shown interest in pursuing independent pharmacy practice. EOG scholarships are awarded in June for use during the following academic year.


EOG scholarships are open to students who are members of the University of Kansas NCPA Student Chapter and information is distributed through the organization. Final decisions on the scholarship awards rest entirely with the EOG Committee.
