Research & Education Grants

Meriter Foundation offers physicians and affiliated staff access to funding through its Research & Education Grants program. A subcommittee of the Foundation Board determines which proposals receive funding each year.  In 2013, more than $500,000 was distributed to the studies and educational opportunities listed below.  These new initiatives are currently underway because of the financial support of the Foundation:
