The Emerson Grant Program 2016
Emerson Ecologics is dedicated to the continued emergence of natural healthcare and wellness. We recognize that hundreds of volunteer-driven organizations work tirelessly to support integrative medicine. As the premier resource of products and services for the integrative healthcare community, Emerson wants to help these organizations achieve their vision.
We are proud to announce The Emerson Grant Program to support the work of our practitioners and promote integrative medicine in the United States. Since 2012, Emerson Ecologics has awarded grants totaling $75,000 to support projects and initiatives that have made a positive impact on integrative medicine. We are thrilled to offer the Emerson Grant Program again this year!
The Emerson Grant Program will provide funding to non-profit organizations in the form of one-time grants to support specific projects and initiatives which will add value to the integrative medicine community. Projects may include legislative efforts, public awareness campaigns or enhancements to education or clinical training. Please note that all project applications are welcome. We value what integrative medicine has to offer and are pleased to support projects that will make a lasting impact in our community and on patient health.
The Emerson Grant is a competitive, discretionary award program ranging from $500 to $10,000 per award. Grant Application Program is now open!
