Boston Scientific Foundation Application
When can organizations apply to the Foundation?
Beginning in 2017 the Boston Scientific Foundation will accept grant applications twice annually, based on focus area. Currently, the Foundation does not have deadlines; grant applications are evaluated throughout the year as they are received.
Please take note of this important change.
January 1 - April 1 Health Applications Accepted
Health applications received between January 1 – April 1 will be assigned to regionally-based review committees for evaluation. Proposals that are recommended by these committees will be presented to the Foundation Board in July. Organizations that submitted health proposals will be notified in July/August as to the status of their application.

Proposals that are recommended by these committees will be presented to the Foundation Board in December. Organizations that submitted education proposals will be notified in December/January as to the status of their application.

We recognize that there is a broad range of organizations engaged in worthy activities, and we regret that we are unable to fund or support every request, application, proposal, or organization. We receive funding requests that far exceed of our annual giving program budget, so we must sometimes decline to support worthy organizations and programs. A declined request does not reflect a negative appraisal of the prospective organization or the value of its services.
Note: A report of the grants made by the Boston Scientific Foundation can be found in the Foundation’s IRS 990 filings and in our Annual Reports.
