Phi Lambda Sigma Application Process

Membership in Phi Lambda Sigma consists of four categories:  Students, Faculty, Alumni & Honorary. Selection for membership comes from the existing members of the society. Prospective members are nominated on the basis of their demonstration of dedication, service, & leadership in the advancement of pharmacy. Members are selected by peer recognition. Such recognition serves to instill self-confidence & to promote greater efforts toward the advancement of pharmacy. Because Phi Lambda Sigma is an Honor Society, its members are individually recognized at graduation, and wear honor cords on their graduation gowns. Membership in Phi Lambda Sigma is life-long.
