COVID-19 Update

At Astellas, the health and well-being of our employees, patients and communities is of high importance. In an effort to help contain the spread of COVID-19, Astellas will prioritize virtual or enduring education activities or other novel instructional design format grant submissions during these uncertain times. For events where in-person attendance is preferred, we recommend including contingency plans and alternative budget information with your initial request, as live meetings may become virtual due to the changing landscape.

Grants for Education
Astellas accepts requests for Grants for Education to fund independent medical education (IME) activities that are high-quality, unbiased, and evidence-based. Educational activities may be accredited and non-accredited. They must be independently developed by the grant recipient organization and/or the grant recipient organization’s educational partners and aim to improve knowledge, skill, and competence and advance patient outcomes.

Where permitted locally, a portion of a Grant for Education to a Healthcare Organization may be used to cover costs associated with HCPs attending the educational program organized by that same HCO, as long as the Grant for Education is primarily used to fund the educational program itself.

Please note that Astellas also accepts requests from Healthcare Organizations for funding to support only healthcare professional (HCP) congress attendance to further their education. Further information and details on how to apply can be found here.

Astellas does not provide direct funding to individual HCPs to attend local, regional or international congresses or medical education meetings.

Grants for General Research
Astellas accepts requests for Grants for General Research to fund an independent research program or project, which does not include specific analysis and/or a protocol to address a research question. The grant recipient assumes full responsibility for the research.

Charitable Initiatives

We are not currently accepting proposals at this time. When we open future request for proposals we will update this page with details on how to apply.

Open Payments Reporting
Astellas complies with all applicable codes, regulations, and requirements for disclosure of transfer of value globally.
