The Harrison Fund Committee is now accepting the submission of proposals for funding for the term July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015. The deadline for applications is May 1. The Committee historically supports individual proposals with annual budgets that range from $5,000 to $20,000.
The Harrison Memorial Fund was created on February 24, 1922, by Deed of Trust of George L. Harrison. Among other things, the Trust provides that “income from the Fund should be used for the direct benefit of poor patients in ways not ordinarily supplied by usual Hospital funds.” Income from the Fund supports prospectively identified therapies that are not covered by patients’ insurers and cannot be covered by their personal financial resources.
Proposals should be submitted electronically to Frederick Nunes, MD, chair, Harrison Fund Committee at Frederick.Nunes@uphs.upenn.edu, and copied to Cindy A. Gallo, Harrison Fund Committee administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org. For specific information on formatting and submitting a Harrison Fund grant proposal please visit the PAH Intranet page.
