About the CTIP CPI Grants

The Catalyzing Pediatric Innovation (CPI) Grant is CTIP's pediatric medical device competition to assist the development of medical device projects for children. We invite proposals addressing the development of novel devices and technologies for pediatric patients.

Pediatric patients have long been an underserved population in the technology space with many having to deal with ill-fitted medical devices and a lack of access to effective diagnostic or therapeutic devices. CTIP aims to address these unmet needs.

  • Up to $25,000-$50,000 per grant will be awarded.
  • 1 year grants.
  • Letter of Intent due April 15, 2019
