FELLOWSHIP ELIGIBILITY

PROGRAM ELIGIBILITY (U.S.):

Current criteria for the Fellowship program prevents participation by anyone not employed with a U.S. human or animal food/feed regulatory agency (local, state, federal, tribal or territorial) or a government laboratory (supporting regulatory food programs).  However, all applicant contact information is maintained on file should in the future the Fellowship program expand to include participation by non-regulatory personnel.

INTERNATIONAL ELIGIBILITY

Applications are welcome from regulators or laboratorians employed by non-U.S. human or animal food/feed regulatory agencies or government laboratories supporting food regulatory programs. The non-U.S. food regulator or laboratorian who desires to be considered for the Fellowship program must personally contact IFPTI for an in-depth discussion of his or her agency’s responsibilities for full tuition payment and all travel expenses.

All non-U.S. applicants must have English proficiency of International English Language Testing System (IELTS) of a minimum of band 7 (Good user). The non-U.S. applicant is required to follow the application and selection process.
