What types of grants do we fund?
Professional and educational grants will be considered with a preference for accredited continuing education (CE) programs. The primary audience for these grants should be healthcare professionals or patients. Ipsen may fund educational seminars, webinars and symposia; the development of educational materials; and other types of valuable educational programs. Award programs, scholarships and fellowships administered by non-profit entities or multiple healthcare institutions that further research in a therapeutic area of focus for Ipsen will also be considered.
