Competition for medical educational grant dollars is very high. The primary focus of the Bayer US Grants will be on medical and healthcare related educational activities in the following therapeutic areas:

Cardiovascular and Renal:


Bayer Oncology

May I request an unrestricted medical educational grant from Bayer US?

Bayer US will not have control over the content of programs; however, Bayer US does not provide “unrestricted grants.” The purpose for the grant must be designated in the proposal and that designated purpose is the only one for which the grant funds may be used.

What items are generally outside the scope of the Bayer US Grants?

  • Grants to individuals or group practices
  • Clinical grants, including Investigator Initiated Trials (Please refer to the Investigator Sponsored Studies link in the navigation bar on the upper left)
  • Personal travel
  • Capital campaigns/Building funds
  • Website development not associated with an accredited educational program
  • Service contracts
  • Religious programs
  • Entertainment (e.g., class reunions, retirement dinners, etc.)
  • General capital or operating expenses (e.g., office equipment/staff, computer hardware/software, medical library resources, etc.)
  • Textbooks and journal subscriptions
  • Advertising, exhibit and display fees (Fees for these events should be forwarded to your Bayer contact or marketing team contact as they are promotional in nature.)
  • Mass media productions not associated with educational content (e.g., CD-ROMS, journal supplements, etc.)
  • Personal development (e.g., individual leadership training)

Does previous support of a program by Bayer US guarantee future support?

No. The grant funding process is very competitive. Each grant is evaluated on its individual merit relative to other grant requests. Please do not consider any request approved until you have received written documentation from Bayer US Grants approving your grant request.
