• How are grant decisions made?

    An internal review committee awards grants based on how closely the proposed project matches Gilead’s mission and therapeutic focus areas.

  • How much grant funding can I apply for?

    There are no minimum or maximum request amounts.  Applicants should request the level of funding that is required based on programmatic needs.

  • Can for-profit organizations apply?

    No.  Gilead gives primarily to non-profit organizations.

  • Can I request a grant for an activity that has already occurred?

    No. Gilead does not provide retroactive funding. Requests for support must be submitted to Gilead at least 8 weeks prior to the start of the activity.

  • My organization previously applied for funding and wants to apply again – is that permitted?

    Yes.  However, repeat grant requests for the same project will not be considered within a given year.

  • If a project has multiple dates or locations, should I submit more than one application?

    Requests for funding to support projects taking place on multiple dates or in multiple locations should be submitted as a single, comprehensive application.

  • If a project covers multiple therapeutic areas, how should I indicate that?

    Please submit an application under the therapeutic area with the most relevant content.  However, it is important to describe objectives for each therapeutic area covered.

  • Is it OK to submit an annual budget in place of a project budget?

    No.  In order for a grant application to be considered, you must submit a detailed project budget including a breakdown of the use of funds requested from Gilead.

  • Can I upload attachments to the application?

    The online form allows a project budget and event agenda to be uploaded.  To include additional files, please email them to grants@gilead.com after submitting the online application form (be sure to indicate your organization name and tax ID number, project title and Gilead Grant ID number).

  • Does Gilead provide a Letter of Agreement (LOA) for medical education grants?

    No. If grant funding is approved, organizations may submit their own standard LOA template, complete with the details of the funded activity (amount funded, date of project, program location etc.) and Gilead Grant ID number, to grants@gilead.com.  Typical processing time is 2 weeks.

  • How will I know when a decision has been made on my grant?

    Formal notifications of all funding decisions are sent in writing by email directly to the contact listed on the Gilead grant account profile.  

  • If awarded, are grant payments disclosed publicly?

    It depends.  Under Section 6002 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (also known as “OPEN PAYMENTS” or the “Physician Payments Sunshine Act”), all drug and device manufacturers are required to report to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) information concerning payments made to physicians and teaching hospitals on an annual basis, and CMS will make the details available for public viewing on its website.  This may result in public disclosure of the following:

    - Grant payments made by Gilead to teaching hospitals (as defined by CMS)  

    - Grant payments made by Gilead that are used by the grantee to fund payments or other transfers of value to U.S. physicians (defined as an M.D., D.O., podiatrist, optometrist, licensed chiropractor, dentist or dental surgeon)

  • Can I speak with a Gilead representative about my application?

    Gilead representatives are available to provide technical assistance with this grants portal but cannot comment on specific grant requests.
