Creighton in Phoenix

Creighton’s 183,000-square-foot, $100 million health sciences campus — opening in 2021 at Park Central in midtown Phoenix — will accommodate nearly 900 students pursuing degrees in pharmacy and other health care professions.  

Creighton is preparing students for a workforce that demands innovative care and service amid a rapidly changing world.

And it all starts with scholarships. 

When you support scholarships in Phoenix, you help us form a new generation of pharmacists ready to serve a region direly in need of health care professionals.

Pharmacy in Phoenix

Creighton’s new campus can't come to Phoenix soon enough, with Arizona requiring more health care professionals to meet the state’s booming population and the growing needs of aging and diverse demographics. 

In Phoenix (and elsewhere), our pharmacy students and alumni strive to live a life of service, compassion and justice, translating the values of a Jesuit education into everyday practice.  

Creighton pharmacy graduates are a tremendous asset to their patients and communities. Through scholarships, we can form and send even more of them into the profession. 

Your support of scholarships will continue to bring the best and brightest students to Phoenix and infuse the area with some of the most practice-ready pharmacists in the nation.

Meeting a need

In the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions, we have a profound sense of privilege to care for others. With that privilege comes the responsibility to offer a transformative education to all worthy and deserving students, regardless of their finances. 

Scholarship support weighs significantly in students' decision to come to Creighton. Tuition alone doesn’t fully cover what it costs to educate our students. In fact, it only covers about two-thirds of it.  

Most of our students receive financial aid or scholarships. Last year alone, Creighton awarded nearly 1,900 scholarships to students across all schools and colleges.  

When you make a gift to scholarships, you help our students manage costs and make ends meet. But more than that, you give them a transformative sense of belonging, purpose and personal growth. 

Alexa Zamudio

Focused on the Whole Person

“I chose to come to Creighton because of the scholarship aid the University offered. Because of donors like you, I'm able to study at one of the country's best pharmacy schools. “Creighton emphasizes the ethics of empathy. They teach you the best ways to connect with your patient as a whole person. That's affected me deeply as a student. It’s helping me become the pharmacist I want to be.”

— Alexa Zamudio, School of Pharmacy and Health Professions

Why the Creighton experience is so much more

Diana Ndunda came to the School of Pharmacy and Health Professions with a vision in mind and a mission at heart. “I moved to the United States to go to pharmacy school,” says the Kenyan-born student. “I knew I wanted to serve others, and that this career path would give me purpose.”
