Commonwealth Jubilee Travel Fellowship

To mark the Golden Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, The Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain, in conjunction with the Commonwealth Pharmaceutical Association, is offering a Commonwealth Jubilee Travel Fellowship of 2,000 (sterling).

The Fellowship will be awarded to a young pharmacist, who is a potential leader in their own country, to give them an opportunity to visit another Commonwealth country.

By meeting with pharmacists, pharmacy organisations and regulatory authorities in the Commonwealth country of their choice, it is intended that the awardee will be able to improve their own practice skills and in turn assist with the development of pharmacy in their own country. Attendance at national or international conference could form part of the travel plan.

Applications are invited from pharmacists working in any area of pharmacy practice - community, hospital, industrial or academic - any pharmacist in developing countries are particularly encouraged to apply.

The Fellowship will comprise the fixed sum of 2,000 (sterling) to be paid to the successful Fellow to enable them to fulfil the objectives of their proposed visit. This should provide sufficient funding for international travel, local travel and subsistence for up to 10 days spent in the other Commonwealth country.

A short report (1000 words) of the visit should be produced within two months of returning home for publication in appropriate journals such as the Pharmaceutical Journal and Commonwealth Pharmaceutical Association Newsletter.


  • The applicant must be a registered pharmacist in a Commonwealth country.
  • The Fellowship is to be used for travel to another Commonwealth country in the latter part of 2002 (the Queen's Jubilee Year).


Applications of about 1,000 words (preferably typed) should describe why the visit would be of value to the recipient and how it would aid the development of pharmacy in their home country. This should include the specific objectives of the travel. In addition, a separate travel plan detailing the organisations to be visited (and the expected costs of travel and accommodation), a one-page curriculum vitae and a recent photograph should accompany the application.

Applications should be sent to The Secretary, Commonwealth Pharmaceutical Association, 1 Lambeth High Street, London SE1 7JN, England by Wednesday 1st May 2002.
