Grants

Throughout its history, the China Medical Board has adopted a policy of not accepting unsolicited grant proposals. Thus, inquiries or unsolicited proposals may not receive an expeditious reply. The rationale is straightforward—CMB's strategic grant-making is highly focused on targeted activities to advance its mission. In its earliest phase, the China Medical Board devoted nearly all of its financing to Peking Union Medical College. Since 1950, the China Medical Board’s grant-making has been targeted at key Chinese and Asian universities. CMB encourages international groups wishing to work in China to establish relationships directly with CMB-affiliated Chinese and Asian institutions.
