Endoscopy

COVID-19 Update: 

COVID-19 has clearly brought unprecedented and significant challenges to our healthcare systems and communities. Our Boston Scientific Endoscopy team will continue to explore ways to support the field of endoscopy through ongoing collaboration with our national society partners. However, given the wide-ranging impact of COVID-19, we are significantly reducing Boston Scientific-led educational programs and third-party programs for the remainder of 2020. Third-party programs will be affected as follows:


Education Grants
Boston Scientific’s Research & Education Committee will not be reviewing existing grant applications or accepting new applications until Q4 2020. If you previously submitted a grant application, you are invited to reapply in Q4 for funding consideration in 2021. If Boston Scientific has already agreed to fund your program in 2020 and you have not yet postponed or canceled, please reach out to us at endogrants@bsci.com so we can discuss the best path forward. 

Fellowship Grants
We have made the decision to preserve fellowship funding. However, applications will not be reviewed until January of 2021, with plans to distribute awards for the entire 2020-21 academic year in the first quarter or 2021. 

Investigator-Sponsored Research (ISR) Grants
We will not be accepting new ISR applications until Q4 for funding in 2021. Any ISR funding decisions that are currently in process will also be deferred to Q4 for funding in 2021.

Additional Considerations
The Committee will not be reviewing any third-party program grants in 2020 for exhibits and local or regional professional organization memberships and/or fees. Where possible, and on a case by case basis, we will consider charitable donations, indigent care donations, and humanitarian product donations.

These were very challenging but necessary decisions. We recognize that these programs are a critical part of how we collectively advance the field of endoscopy and our shared mission of improving patient care. If the COVID-19 crisis begins to improve earlier than anticipated, we will certainly re-evaluate.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

The Boston Scientific Endoscopy Grant and Donation submission guidelines have recently changed.  

The lead time for grant application submission is 60 days.  This will allow for necessary time to review, process, and provide payment for grant requests. Any submission received after the deadline will not be accepted. To the left of the screen is a list of our grant and donation offerings. Below is a list of associated submission deadlines. 

If you have questions please contact us at Endogrants@bsci.com, and we will be happy to help.  Thank you for your cooperation.
