USP's Fellows Program promotes research in areas relating to standards for and use of drugs, foods, and dietary supplements. Since the inception of the USP Fellows Program in 1981, USP has invested nearly $4 million in over 200 Fellowship awards.
Three awards at $50,000
The USP Research Fellowship Awards will be presented to the students whose proposed research directly address specific USP scientific or research needs. This program offers up to three years of funding. Applicants must ensure that their research topic is in close alignment to USP research priorities as detailed below.
Applicants for the USP Research Fellowship Awards must
*Have been accepted for full–time study in a Ph.D. or Pharm.D. program or medical or dental school;
*Have been accepted to a Fellowship Program; or
*Have been awarded a postdoctoral research (non–faculty) appointment.
Non–U.S. applicants must have a background in standards and currently be enrolled in an equivalent educational program. International students must possess the appropriate visa required to participate in the Research Fellows Program. USP will not assist students to obtain a visa for this purpose. USP may require proof of visa status as a condition of offering a Research Fellowship to a student.
Applicants for Global Fellowship Awards may not currently be in receipt of funds from USP, or directly or indirectly under contract with USP, even if the activity is unrelated to applicant’s research proposal.
The USP Research Fellowship Awards allow for subsequent year's funding; however, second awards are not automatic. Applications for continued funding must include a progress report on the research up to the time of application.
Each application must include:
*A completed application form signed by the applicant, a faculty advisor, and a university official
*A curriculum vitae and transcript
*A progress report on the research if application is for second–year funding
*A research proposal
