Duchesnay USA’s independent medical education grants in prenatal care and post-menopausal care
Welcome to the Duchesnay USA online grant application process. Duchesnay USA is a specialty pharmaceutical company with a long-standing commitment to women’s health. Until recently, the company focused on filling the void in terms of scientific research and education and on developing pharmacological solutions that are safe and effective for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Today, Duchesnay has broadened its portfolio of products to offer safe and effective therapeutic options that meet the health and quality of life needs of women and their family members at different stages of their lives.
Duchesnay USA is committed to supporting the advancement of medicine by providing independent medical educational grants to qualified organizations. Thank you for considering Duchesnay USA as a source of support for your educational initiatives.
Duchesnay USA currently accepts applications for grants to fund educational activities in the following fields:
- Prenatal care
- Post-menopausal care
Grant applicants must demonstrate their ability to fulfil a specific educational need in an effective meeting format that will promote healthcare education, excellence in patient care and improved patient outcomes.
Duchesnay USA will only consider grant applications for programs or events occurring within the twelve (12) months following the grant application date and not for programs or events that have already taken place.
Grant requests should be for programs based in the United States.
The following organizations are eligible for educational grants:
- Medical associations
- Medical schools
- Non-profit organizations
Funding is intended to educate broad audiences and cannot be used toward the education of a single individual.

Duchesnay USA plays no role in the development or the implementation of the activity.
Please do not submit requests for funding for exhibits or display booths, charitable contributions, promotional programs, membership fees, corporate sponsorship agreements, social events/entertainment, medical missions to foreign countries or advertisements, as these activities are not eligible for funding.
