Past Programs

Over the past decade, the Elsevier Foundation has awarded over a 100 grants worth millions of dollars to non-profit organizations focusing on the world’s libraries, nurse faculties and women scholars during their early and mid-careers. In 2016, we worked closely with advisors and colleagues to launch a new series of partnership-driven programs focusing on global health, research in developing countries and a broadened approach to diversity in science. We have learned a great deal from our 2006 – 2015 cycle of programming and are pleased to share some of the highlights and lessons learned along the way.
