Grants Champion - Providing Funding under Various Categories

About Novartis

Novartis was created in 1996 through a merger of Ciba-Geigy and Sandoz. Novartis and its predecessor companies trace roots back more than 250 years, with a rich history of developing innovative products. From beginnings in the production of synthetic fabric dyes, the companies that eventually became Novartis branched out into producing chemicals and ultimately pharmaceuticals.

About the Grants

Novartis can provide reasonable financial support for the general purposes of supporting healthcare initiatives like improving medical infrastructure, independent medical activities, support for healthcare professional societies, health and medical policy research and patient group activities.

If you are interested in obtaining financial support from Novartis, please download and complete the Application for Grant template and Novartis Request for Financial Support Application Form.

Novartis Pharmaceuticals India provides grants to healthcare organizations in line with local laws and codes. A key principle of Novartis’ grant policy is that Novartis does not support requests, which benefit individuals, including requests for personal ongoing education and requests for travel grants to attend an educational meeting.

The information below provides further details on what we can support and how you can apply.

What we can support

To be approved, grants must be:

  • Provided to reputable healthcare-related institutions/ associations/ organizations for the general purpose of supporting healthcare. Funding cannot go to, or through, an individual healthcare professional.
  • Provided without agreement or intent to receive a tangible benefit, for commercial or promotional purposes
  • Clearly aligned to the Areas of Interest defined – see  Areas of Interest below
  • Grants cannot fund expenses already incurred by the recipient
  • Grants cannot be used to discharge the requestor’s ordinary operating expenses i.e. general staffing positions


For all forms of grants requests, provision is subject to: (i) available capacity; (ii) the request meeting the criteria for the available support; and (iii) provision being permitted within applicable laws, guidelines and codes.

Unfortunately, Novartis is unable to meet all of the requests it receives. We will prioritize those requests, which are aligned to our therapy areas and focus on supporting both scientific and charitable organizations, which directly support patients, improve healthcare and enable ongoing education.

Areas of Interest

How to apply

All requests are reviewed by a Grants approval body and processed as per internal systems. Grants can only be paid to reputable organizations and checks on organizations to confirm this will be made.
