Harold S. Geneen Charitable Trust Awards Program for Coronary Heart Disease Research
In accordance with Mr. Geneen’s directives the Program seeks to establish “…a more direct and personalized relationship with grant recipients than is normally possible in dealing with the diffuse and bureaucratic administrations through which large organizations are managed,…and to support smaller institutions rather than major universities or medical complexes which have a demonstrated capacity to raise funds from the public generally.”
Invited medical schools may submit one application to the Program which meets the eligibility requirements for the 2014 Grant Cycle. Applicants must be full-time faculty at an invited nonprofit academic, medical, or research institution in New England. United States citizenship is not required. Junior faculty are encouraged to apply.
As Co-Trustee, U.S. Trust has retained The Medical Foundation division to manage the administrative aspects of the Harold S. Geneen Charitable Trust Awards Program for Coronary Heart Disease Research. The Medical Foundation, a division of Health Resources in Action (HRiA) is a Boston-based nonprofit organization that advances public health and medical research.
