Genentech and the Genentech Foundation launched the third Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Health Equity & Diversity in STEM Innovation Fund. The Genentech Innovation Fund was established in 2019 to catalyze novel solutions to improve equity in clinical research, health care delivery, and the science and health care workforce. It is one mechanism for advancing Genentech’s ambitious Diversity & Inclusion goals and commitment to transforming society by addressing the critical challenges that impact its industry’s ability to innovate on behalf of patients. Since its launch, Genentech has awarded $21 million to more than 60 universities and nonprofit organizations nationwide. Through the 2022 Fund, it will award over $12 million to advancing Diversity in STEM and Health Equity.
The 2022 Fund invites proposals to increase the representation of communities of color in clinical research and eliminate inequity in care delivery, and dismantle barriers to a diverse, inclusive and antiracist scientific and health care workforce.

- Institutions recognized by the IRS as a tax exempt, public charity under sections 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(6) of the Internal Revenue Code;
