Dear All,

UPD has funding for several representatives of civil society and academia
to attend the next TPPA negotiating round which will be held in Leesburg,
VA from 6-15 September.    The grant will be used to support
representatives working on access to knowledge and access to medicines
issues.

Selection criteria for the awards of these funds will be based on
the following:
* Geographic diversity and representation, with preference given
to representatives from countries that are current negotiating or
prospective TPPA membership
* Area of expertise/substantive knowledge of the applicant
* Proven track record on issues covered by the TPPA
* Potential influence of the applicant

If you would like to apply for a travel grant for the Texas round, please
send an e-mail to <krista.cox at keionline.org> with a proposed budget
who will forward your information to the UPD selection committee.

**Given the fast approaching round, including deadline for registration,
applicants are are encouraged to send their applications ASAP**

Given the size of the travel grant and the number of meetings, UPD
will undoubtedly
not be able to fund all of the applications.
