Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA education providers to address the educational needs of workers in the healthcare sector. Applicants must submit an executive summary prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended for educational projects that are designed to improve patient care by focusing on the improved application of knowledge, competence, and performance among healthcare professionals. The goal of the program is to support quality independent education within the focus area of stroke care.

Genentech/Roche supports grants for independent medical education in an effort to further the advance of medicine and healthcare by improving the knowledge of the medical community. Independent Medical Education (IME) is generally defined as education for healthcare professionals (HCPs) provided by an independent educational provider, such as a community hospital, academic center, society/association, or medical education and communication company.

Grant requests must identify unmet educational needs of a target audience and demonstrate how the program will address the unmet educational needs, and encourage the improvement of medicine and healthcare. The selection of medium and format should be commensurate with the educational needs, the audience, learning preferences, geography, content, and other factors that contribute to educational effectiveness. Responsibility and control over the selection, content, faculty, educational methods, materials, and venue for an independent medical education event belongs solely to the organizers of the event.
