Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, schools, IHEs, hospitals, and tribes for programs to foster diversity and equity in STEM and health. Proposals will be accepted in one of the following funding priorities: promoting diversity in undergraduate STEM pathways, advancing health equity, and promoting diversity in STEM.

The Health Equity and Diversity in STEM Innovation Fund invites proposals to support major priorities:

  1. Health Equity: Increasing representation of communities of color in clinical research and eliminating inequities in care delivery
  2. Workforce Diversity: Dismantling barriers to a diverse, inclusive and antiracist scientific and health care workforce

Successful proposals will align with one of the sub-aims outlined below.

Aim 1: Advancing Health Equity: Genentech is accepting initial applications from prospective partners aimed at pioneering new approaches to engage patients of color across the research to care continuum. We are seeking proposals that elevate patient and community voice, power and engagement in clinical research; build and strengthen accountability mechanisms to eliminate unequal treatment and inequities in care; and expand the reach of health care through community-clinic partnerships.

Aim 2: Promoting Diversity in STEM: Genentech is accepting initial applications from prospective partners working to build a more diverse and inclusive future of health care and science. We are seeking proposals that address structural and systemic inequity from kindergarten to careers, and partner with organizations that support the training, recruitment, retainment, and advancement of students and researchers from communities of color. We partner to equip students with financial and nonfinancial support, connect young professionals with mentors, and prepare early career researchers and health care professionals to become leaders in science and medicine.

Aim 3: Promoting Diversity in Undergraduate STEM Pathways (Genentech Foundation): The Genentech Foundation is accepting initial applications from prospective partners working to build a more diverse and inclusive future of health care and science. We are seeking proposals that address structural and systemic inequity, with a particular focus on streamlining pathways for diverse community college students to pursue science and medicine careers, including transfer to four-year colleges and universities and pursuit of graduate education.
