The ISPE Foundation invites students and recent graduates to apply to receive financial support to attend the 2024 ISPE Annual Meeting & Expo, taking place 13–16 October in Orlando, Florida, USA

The ISPE Foundation, with support from the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE), has announced an open call for students and recent graduates to apply to attend the 2024 ISPE Annual Meeting & Expo with financial assistance through the ISPE Foundation Professional Development Grants program.

The 2024 ISPE Annual Meeting & Expo will take place from 13–16 October in Orlando, Florida, USA. This is one of ISPE's largest conferences of the year, in addition to the 2024 ISPE Europe Annual Conference, which took place in April and provided grants to 14 students and recent graduates. More than 170 students and recent graduates benefited from grants provided by the ISPE Foundation to attend ISPE conferences in 2023.

The impact extends far beyond immediate assistance. The ISPE Foundation equips individuals with the skills, knowledge, and resources to break free from the generational cycle of adversity. It is a lifeline for individuals like me and a testament to the power of compassion and collective action. Support has the potential to change lives, inspire confidence, uplift communities, and create a brighter future with a lasting impact.
