YPG grants

The YPG currently coordinates two different grants:

1. The Young Pharmacists/ Pharmaceutical Scientists Grant

for professional innovation annually recognises a young

pharmacist or pharmaceutical scientist with an innovative

project. This project should identify a specific problem,

describe a pharmacist-driven solution, and ultimately,

contribute to improving health. The project can involve any

field of professional practice or pharmaceutical science.

2. The Mike How Award supports one congress attendee who

has been actively involved in the development,

manufacturing or regulatory aspects of pharmaceuticals.

YPG collaborates with the FIP Industrial Pharmacy Section

and the International Pharmacy Students’ Federation (IPSF)

to provide this grant to our members.

For more information on the grants, please email YPG at

[email protected].

Collaboration within FIP

The YPG has been working with the FIP sections and SIGs to

discussion of topical events. All FIP members who belong to

the YPG belong to the discussion group.
