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. Live events will be considered when exposure restrictions are lifted. Exceptions may be granted for future national live meetings with known early submission deadlines.

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.

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 provide funding to qualified 501(c)(3) or otherwise IRS tax-exempt charitable organizations. We support programs and activities in communities near Astellas offices as well as national initiatives. We are currently accepting proposals that align with the Request for Proposal (RFP). All applications must align with the RFP and be submitted by January 21, 2022 through the donation system.

Open Payments (Sunshine) Reporting
Astellas adheres to The Physician Payment Transparency Program (commonly referred to as the Sunshine Act and Open Payments) and will report all appropriate payments to covered recipients for all grants approved after August 1, 2013.
