The American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) recognized the need for funding to support the education and research of pharmaceutical scientists. In November 2013, AAPS initiated the AAPS Foundation with a vision to empower not only current scientists, but the next generation as well.

Two years later, with the support of AAPS members, donors, and corporate gifts, the AAPS Foundation awarded monies to support undergraduate and graduate students and assistant faculty members' research. In addition, the AAPS Foundation provides funds to encourage, inspire, and inform K–12 students of career opportunities in the pharmaceutical sciences.


The American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists Foundation is the philanthropic arm of AAPS. Its mission is to provide meaningful financial support to scientists to advance research, education, and training for the discovery, development, and manufacture of drugs.


The Foundation seeks to enable pharmaceutical scientists and to expand and engage the interests of future generations of scientists.
