Grant Application Review Process

Online applications for grants are accepted anytime before the annual September 1 deadline. All grant applications are initially reviewed by MDRT Foundation staff.  The MDRT member is responsible for writing a charity endorsement letter, while staff at the applying charity complete the online grant application. Grant requests meeting the stated criteria are submitted to the MDRT Foundation Grants Committee for review, classification and deliberation. The committee then forwards its recommendations to the MDRT Foundation Board of Trustees, which makes final award decisions.

The MDRT Foundation Grants Committee meets once each year to review grant applications and make recommendations. Please submit your grant request while being mindful of the time constraints involved with a September 1 deadline. All applications, including required attachments, must be received on or before that date. Incomplete applications, or applications received after the deadline, will be denied.

All applicants must review MDRT Foundation grant application guidelines and eligibility requirements before downloading an application. Applications received after the September 1 deadline may be considered for the next grant year.

All grant awards are announced in January.
