About this Fellowship

PhRMA Foundation Predoctoral Fellowships are open to PhD students conducting research in four areas: Drug Discovery, Drug Delivery, Translational Medicine, and Value Assessment & Health Outcomes.

Applicants must have completed most of their pre-thesis requirements (at least two years of coursework) and be engaged in thesis research as PhD candidates by the time the award is activated. Applicants should expect to complete their PhD requirements in two years or less from the time funding begins.

Only one predoctoral applicant per lab may apply for this award. If multiple applicants apply, they will automatically be ineligible. Potential applicants and their thesis advisors and/or lab managers should decide who should apply.

Interested applicants must submit a Letter of Interest (LOI) by the deadline and select applicants will be chosen to submit a full application.
