The PhRMA Foundation Predoctoral Fellowship programs provide up to two years of stipend funding to support full-time advanced students who will have completed most of their pre-thesis requirements (at least two years of study) and be engaged in thesis research as PhD candidates by the time the award is activated.
Fellowships are $25,000 per year, for up to two years.
Applications will be accepted for a minimum of one year and a maximum of two years of stipend support. Predoctoral Fellowships are designed for students who expect to complete their PhD requirements in two years or less from the time the fellowship begins.
The predoctoral fellowship awards are awarded for specific areas of inquiry. These awards are currently:
- Value assessment and health outcomes research
- Drug delivery
- Drug discovery
