CME/CE Grants


Please see below for instructions on how to submit a request for support of an educational program for healthcare providers such as physicians, nurses, and/or pharmacists that provides continuing education credits.


IMPORTANT NOTE: For CME/CE-certified activities, the application must be submitted by the CME/CE provider. Third Parties, such as medical education companies, are not permitted to submit applications within the system. If the grant is approved, Third Parties may be granted access to the system for required activity status updates (at the request of the CME/CE provider).


A THIRD PARTY is an entity that contributes to content development, certifies the activity for non-physician audiences, or is the requesting organization’s designated payee. Organizations that provide only logistics assistance are not considered Third Parties within the system and are not required to register.



Eligibility/ Exclusions


Educational grants cannot be used to support:


  • Programs that have already occurred.
  • Promotional activities related to Janssen Therapeutics products.
  • Normal organizational overhead (ie, rent, office supplies, utilities), staff training, or provision of medical care.
  • Travel, lodging, or honorarium for a healthcare professional to present a paper or poster.
  • Travel, lodging or scholarships for program attendees/learners.
  • Marketing sponsorships or exhibit opportunities. Educational grant requests that include marketing sponsorship or exhibit opportunities will be denied.

Requirements for Registration


All applicants are required to register within the grant management system prior to submitting a request for funding. Third Parties that serve as Educational Partners for educational activities will also be invited to register. Applicants may identify Third Parties at the time of registration or, once registered, during the application process.


Requesting organizations must add third-party collaborators to their profile in order to include them on a grant application. If an intended collaborating third party is not registered in the system and/or associated with the requesting organization at the time of application, the grant submission cannot be completed until the third party registers. To save time, we encourage organizations to list their potential collaborative partners in their profiles at the time of registration.


Please see the FAQs for specific details about the registration process and eligiblity.
