Fellowship Grants

We may support professional education by providing funding for a limited number of medical fellowship positions at qualified academic or training institutions. Most qualifying fellowships are accredited training programs for post-graduate advanced specialties supported by national medical societies that make fellowship grants to academic medical institutions or directly by academic medical institutions. The fellowship programs generally lead to board certification in a medical specialty. Grants are provided only to support salary and benefits for fellowship programs.

Programs involving research projects are also eligible for submission, and applicants are encouraged to describe any research components of the fellowship program.

Please note: The following businesses have special deadlines for all Fellowship applications each year:

  • Rhythm and Electrophysiology (EP), includes Cardiac Rhythm Management (CRM) – March 1
  • Urology and Women’s Health – October 25  
  • Endoscopy (ENDO) – March 15 and October 15  
  • Interventional Cardiology (IC) and Peripheral Interventions (PI) are not accepting fellowship applications for this academic year.  

We receive many worthwhile requests. Unfortunately, due to budget limitations, we are unable to fund them all. It is important to note that past funding does not guarantee future approval and that submissions can be approved at an amount less than the requested amount. Do not assume that a request has been approved. Requestors will receive an email notification of approval or denial after the Boston Scientific committee has made its decisions.

The U.S. Physician Payment Sunshine Act requires all pharmaceutical, biologic and medical device manufacturers – like Boston Scientific – to report annually to the U.S. government payments and transfers of value made to U.S. physicians and teaching hospitals. This could include educational and research grants and charitable donations.
