About the Submission Process
We encourage investigators to submit applications for funding to expand the body of scientific knowledge to benefit healthcare practitioners and their patients worldwide.  

Baxter is committed to a rigorous review process for awarding grants. All submissions are reviewed by a multidisciplinary team led by Baxter's Medical Affairs group. Once accepted for review, the proposal is evaluated on the basis of medical or scientific merit. Only complete applications will be accepted for review.

Baxter's acceptance of your proposal and request for funding is not an indication that Baxter will fund your research. By submitting your materials to Baxter for review, you understand that Baxter will not treat the information as confidential or proprietary and Baxter has no obligation to keep it confidential.  

Please do not consider any request approved until you have received written documentation from Baxter notifying you of the grant approval. Any award is contingent on availability of funds and subject to the terms and conditions required by Baxter. Although you may receive notification that the grant has been approved, actual receipt of funding is contingent upon timely execution of a grant agreement by both parties. Submission of application(s) is deemed acceptance of these provisions.
Educational Grants
Baxter provides financial assistance to independent third parties to support accredited or unaccredited educational symposia, seminars and/or sessions directed at certified healthcare professionals, where the grant recipient is solely responsible for developing the content and managing the educational event.  

Baxter is committed to a rigorous process for awarding grants. Grant applications must be received by Baxter at least twelve (12) weeks prior to the activity start date to be considered eligible for funding. Submissions are reviewed by a multidisciplinary team within Baxter. Once accepted for review, the proposal is evaluated on the basis of medical or scientific merit and alignment to strategy, and awarded based on the availability of funds in the review period.
