Welcome to our website


The Philippe Foundation is a non-profit corporation founded in December 1953. Its purpose is to encourage, assist, aid and support scientific and medical activities and research by giving grants to doctors and scientists (post-graduates) interested in exchange programs between France and the United States, specifically in medical laboratories.


The grants are designed to encourage and facilitate Franco-American exchanges, but cannot provide the primary source of support.


They are awarded to individuals and not to laboratories or institutions.


Please note that in view of the large number of applications, requirements are now more strict :


- The Philippe Foundation will only consider candidates who have completed a PhD in Science. For medical doctors, this requirement may be waived, but they should have a significant list of publications.


- The host lab has to be focused on medical research.


- Will only be considered those who have been staying in the host country for less than 2 years.


- The grantee is required to provide the Philippe Foundation a research report. This report and the applicant's list of latest publications (published and in process) are due upon completion of your exchange program, within 3 months of the return from host country.



All documents received from the applicants remain strictly confidential.
