Genentech is committed to supporting programs open to a broad audience that benefit patients, the scientific or medical community, and/or public health.
Fellowships are for grants to independent professional organizations, independent charitable organizations, or other eligible institutions, where the funds are used to support advanced study by clinical and research professionals at an accredited university or teaching institution.
Due to our 2019 year-end close process, the Genentech Funding Request System will stop accepting Healthcare-related Charitable Support, Scientific Project Support and Fellowship requests at 5:00PM PT, Monday, November 25 and will reopen for requests on Thursday, January 2.
This temporary closure only affects Healthcare-related Charitable Support, Scientific Project Support and Fellowships. Independent Medical Education and Philanthropic requests will continue to be accepted during this time.
It is important to note the Genentech Funding Request System cannot accept requests less than 60 days prior to the event/program start date. Therefore, if you plan to submit a charitable contribution request for an event or program occurring before March 3, 2020, please submit your request no later than November 25, to ensure consideration.
Pending requests with event/program dates beginning in mid-January 2019 or beyond will receive final decisions in the new year.
