About the Submission Process
We encourage investigators to submit applications for funding to expand the body of scientific knowledge to benefit healthcare practitioners and their patients worldwide.  

Baxter is committed to a rigorous review process for awarding grants. All submissions are reviewed by a multidisciplinary team led by Baxter's Medical Affairs group. Once accepted for review, the proposal is evaluated on the basis of medical or scientific merit. Only complete applications will be accepted for review.

Baxter's acceptance of your proposal and request for funding is not an indication that Baxter will fund your research. By submitting your materials to Baxter for review, you understand that Baxter will not treat the information as confidential or proprietary and Baxter has no obligation to keep it confidential.  

Please do not consider any request approved until you have received written documentation from Baxter notifying you of the grant approval. Any award is contingent on availability of funds and subject to the terms and conditions required by Baxter. Although you may receive notification that the grant has been approved, actual receipt of funding is contingent upon timely execution of a grant agreement by both parties. Submission of application(s) is deemed acceptance of these provisions.
