Welcome to the Philippe Foundation website


Philippe Foundation Inc is an American foundation created in 1953.


The Foundation grants additional scholarships to doctors and scientists (post-docs only) who participate in exchange programs between France and the United States, in medical research laboratories. These scholarship supplements aim to encourage medical research and facilitate Franco-American scientific and medical exchanges.


They are awarded to individuals only and not to laboratories or research teams.


All documents received from candidates remain strictly confidential.


Given the large number of applications received, the requirements are now stricter:


  • Philippe Foundation will only select applicants with a doctorate in science.


  • Doctors must have a doctorate in science completed or in progress (2nd or 3rd year).


  • All candidates must also have a significant list of publications in recognized scientific journals. Unpublished articles and abstracts will not be considered.


  • The host laboratory must be a reputable medical research laboratory.


  • Only applicants who submit an application before their departure or who have spent a maximum of 1 year in the country where the post-doc takes place will be taken into account.


  • At the end of the exchange program, the scholarship holder must submit to the Philippe Foundation, within 3 months of his return to the country of origin, the research report including the scientific articles resulting from the exchange program.
