Whether you’re a non-profit, patient advocate, medical professional or researcher, AstraZeneca realizes the value of the work that you are doing in support of our community. 

AstraZeneca is committed to supporting and enabling quality independent medical and scientific education as well as charitable support that will enhance patient care and meets our standards of quality and compliance. Please utilize our Global RAPID Pre-assessment to determine what application process to follow based on the nature of your proposal.

If you are a US-based organization or planning an educational activity that is directed primarily to US audiences, then requests for educational grants must be submitted through US MEGO process.

Independent Medical Education:

·         Medical Education Grants

The independent medical education programs that we support include educational activities certified for CME/CE for physicians, pharmacists, nurses, and other health care professionals, as well as activities without continuing education credit. All accredited programs must follow the standards set forth in the ACCME Standards for Commercial Support or other similar accrediting organizations. Responsibility and control over selection, content, faculty, educational materials and venue for independent educational programs belong solely to the organizers. AstraZeneca will not provide any guidance to the independent educational provider

even if asked) regarding the content or faculty for any program receiving funding. 

We accept applications from a wide range of health care organizations, associations, medical specialty societies, academic institutions, hospitals and medical education companies. 


·         Fellowships

        Fellowship grants must be educational and non-promotional in nature.


·         Sponsorship of conferences and initiatives for healthcare professionals and scientists

  We will consider requests for sponsorship of scientific and research conferences and meetings. These meetings are used to provide
 opportunities for discussion of current research topics or scientific methodology and are not intended to provide medical education to
 prescribing physicians. 


·         Charitable Support

        AstraZeneca uses “contribution” as our umbrella term to cover charitable support, regardless of whether or not it’s referred to as a donation, sponsorship or partnership. We generally invite nonprofit organizations to apply for contributions and rarely support unsolicited requests. Discover the criteria AstraZeneca looks for when considering requests from non-profit organizations.
