Grant Programs

At Harmony Biosciences our culture is defined by our core values–keeping patients at the heart of everything we do, acting with integrity and ethics, working with a one-team attitude, leading the science as we identify clinical possibilities, and delivering excellence.

Harmony is committed to giving back to the communities we serve and considers grant requests for support of: patient advocacy organizations, charitable organizations, medical education and sponsorships, and our Patients at the Heart program.

Harmony does not provide grants to individuals unless an individual is acting as sponsor investigator of an investigator-sponsored study/research. No grants, sponsorships, or charitable contributions are offered or provided in exchange for endorsing or prescribing Harmony products or for a commitment to continue prescribing Harmony products. In other words, any quid pro quo is strictly prohibited.

Any funding provided by Harmony will be in compliance with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations.

Harmony’s Patients at the Heart Grant Program

The Patients at the Heart Grant is a competitive grant opportunity to fund innovative patient-centric programs for the narcolepsy community. Harmony has committed an initial $65,000 to this program, with grants being announced on World Narcolepsy Day on September 22, 2019, and awarded in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Details about the 2020 program will be available in the second quarter of 2020.
