Any member of a member society of the IFSCC can apply; normally those under age 35 may apply. The applicant should submit an essay (500-3000 words) on the following topics: The IFSCC—what does the Federation mean to you-how can it be improved?; How does your local cosmetic society help and support you in your career?; How can cosmetic science technology save the world?; or Green cosmetic products-how can we ensure they are really eco-friendly?
