January, March, May, July, September and November.

Please review the deadlines prior to submitting applications for funding.


  • Submissions must be made via the online application system. You will receive confirmation of your submission by email. Faxed and mailed submissions will not be accepted.

  • IMPORTANT PROCESS CHANGE: Requests for funding in support of CME/CE, Non-CE, and Patient Education activities SHOULD NOT include the names of potential chairpersons, faculty and/or speakers. We do, however, continue to require a description of the credentials and/or experience required for the chairpersons, faculty and/or speakers for each activity.
  • Receipt of an application by Janssen Therapeutics does not guarantee approval of your request, nor financial support for the entire amount being requested. If your request is approved, you will receive instructions on how to proceed with signing the letter of agreement (LOA).
  • Disclosure of Janssen Therapeutics' financial support must be made known to program participants. To request a copy of our corporate logo, please contact jtgrantinfo@its.jnj.com.
  • If your grant or contribution request is approved, the Company reserves the right to post the information regarding funding under this agreement on a publicly accessible web site. This includes the identity of the recipient, the monetary value of the funding, the purposes for such funding, and other information as the Company determines appropriate.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Submitting Educational Grant Requests


Step 1: Register as a user within the Educational Grant System.


Step 2: Prepare documents/information that you will need to reference or upload when filling out the online application. Check Submission Guidelines information above to see specific Submission Requirements for the grant application type you wish to submit. Click here to download a blank application form for reference. Please note: if you will be working with a Third Party, you should identify them when you register. They will receive instructions on how to register within the system and link their organization to yours. If you wait to identify a Third Party until you are completing your application, you will have to wait until the Third Party registers within the system to proceed. You should save your “in progress” application and return later.


Step 3: Log into Educational Grant System and complete the online application. There are several tabs that you will navigate through to complete your grant application. NOTE: The system does not “time out”. You may save and return to an “in progress” application at a later date by logging back into the system.

Important notes:


  • 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).
  • IMPORTANT PROCESS CHANGE: Requests for funding in support of CME/CE, Non-CE, and Patient Education activities SHOULD NOT include the names of potential chairpersons, faculty and/or speakers. We do, however, continue to require a description of the credentials and/or experience required for the chairpersons, faculty and/or speakers for each activity
  • Any identified Third Parties must be registered within the Grant Management System in order for you to complete your application.
  • You will be asked to complete several attestation statements within the application. These are statements that were formerly submitted via the Letter of Request. The statements pertain to your organization and the information included in the grant request. If you have any questions or are not able to attest to these statements, please contact the Educational Grants office via email (jtgrantinfo@its.jnj.com).


Step 4: Submit your completed request. Upon submission, you will receive an automated email reply with your Request ID number. Please save this ID number for future reference.


Step 5: Check back into the system reqularly to access your account, check the status of your request(s), and manage your activities. You may receive a “Request for Additional Information (RAI)” if the grant review committee requires additional information to complete your request. (Please note: An RAI does not indicate approval of your request). You will be notified of the decision on your grant request during the applicable "Notification Period" posted on this website.


Step 6: If your grant application is approved, you will receive an email asking for the authorized signer from your organization to log into the system and provide an electronic signature on the Letter of Agreement (LOA). Once the LOA has been countersigned by Janssen Therapeutics, you will receive an email letting you know that the fully executed LOA is available for you to download for your records.


Step 7: Grantees will receive notification when updates to activity status and reconciliation are required. Both functions can be accomplished online within the grant management system.
