The mission of the United States Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) is to improve global health through public standards and related programs that help ensure the quality, safety, and benefit of medicines and foods.

USP offers annual fellowship awards of up to $50,000 to students whose proposed research directly addresses a specific USP scientific or research need.

The goal of USP Global Fellowship Program is to advance new research that contributes to innovative or updated quality standards for medicines, food ingredients and dietary supplements, and to support the work of early career scientists in these fields.

The application is due May 2, 2014. For more information, visit the USP Fellowship webpage.
