Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit and governmental organizations including schools, IHEs, hospitals, and tribes in eligible locations to promote diversity in STEM fields and to address the impacts of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on BIPOC communities. An LOI must be submitted prior to the full application. Applicants must comply with geographical requirements: K-12 (California); undergraduate and graduate (Bay Area, San Diego, Portland, Louisville and National) ; postgraduate (United States).

Funding is intended to break down barriers for BIPOC students across all stages of their education journey, which is why we’re accepting letters of interest ranging from K-12 to postgraduate support, including:
  • K-12: Cultivating STEM Excitement and Career Exploration: Many elementary schools do not teach science, and many BIPOC students lack hands-on, culturally relevant STEM content. As students enter high school and begin thinking about career options, many girls, low-income, and BIPOC students choose to opt-out of STEM. Genentech and The Genentech Foundation are interested in funding programs that support BIPOC students who currently attend K-12 public schools and qualify for free and reduced lunch. Additional information can be found at https://www.gene.com/assets/frontend/pdf/content/good/grants/2020_Diverse_Future_of_STEM_Fund_CGN.pdf#page=1.
  • Undergraduate and Graduate: Building Experience: Due to pre-existing inequities within the education system, the educational challenges posed by COVID-19 are having a disproportionate impact on BIPOC students. The Genentech Foundation is interested in funding programs that are responding to the challenges of COVID-19 and have a focus on BIPOC students. Additional information can be found at https://www.gene.com/assets/frontend/pdf/content/good/grants/2020_Diverse_Future_of_STEM_Fund_CGN.pdf#page=2
  • Postgraduate and Career Development: Representation of BIPOC in medicine and biomedical research are not reflective of the national population. BIPOC are also underrepresented in faculty and leadership positions in academia. Genentech is interested in funding innovative programs that support the career development, retention, and advancement of students and researchers working within Genentech’s therapeutic areas.
