Scholarship Information:

The International Consumer Product Health and Safety Organization (ICPHSO) is proud to be the only organization that attracts a global audience of health and safety professionals who meet to exchange ideas and share information to address health and safety concerns.  To do this effectively, ICPHSO needs to support stakeholders that may not have the resources to attend our meetings.  ICPHSO provides the sole international forum for consumer product safety.  Therefore, making sure that all stakeholders can participate regardless of their resources is an important goal that furthers the richness and breadth of our meetings.
