Goals and Objectives
Since 2000, STP Fellows from Turkey, Egypt, Nigeria, Kenya, China, India, Ghana and Uruguay, have received training at Host Companies in the U.S.A., Japan, South Africa, U.K., Canada, Denmark, Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany. The STP Fellowship Trainee Report requirements (August 2019) outlines the written report requirements once Host Company training is completed. Once the report is approved by the COCI-STP Coordinator. the trainee is designated an “STP Fellow”. The STP is coordinated by the Committee on Chemistry and Industry (COCI). See COCI page or STP page for more information.
