Welcome to US GSK Independent Medical Education!

Updated February 26, 2018

This site is intended for US-based organizations requesting grant funding to support independent third-party educational activities (also called IME, CME, CPD) for US-based healthcare professionals (HCP). GSK’s priority is to identify and fund innovative, high-quality educational initiatives that are designed to close HCP knowledge, competence, and performance gaps to improve patient health.

Prior to submitting a grant, organizations must first register and be approved as an eligible educational provider. GSK accepts educational grant applications in response to a specific Call for Grant Applications (CGA). Grant review criteria, disease areas of interest, and grant submission dates are included in the CGA. As stated in the CGA and our Letter of Agreement, no GSK funds may be used for food, beverage, meals, travel, or accommodation costs for attendees.

Please visit our new Grant Management System:

If you are already registered in one of GSK’s legacy grant systems, please visit the new system (see link above) and click the “Forgot your password?” link (top right of page) to reset your password for access to the new system. If you don't receive the email to reset your password in your Inbox, please check your Spam/Junk email folder. Once you reset your password in the new system, you will be prompted to review your migrated organization data and submit additional information required in the new system to proceed with registration.

If you have not yet registered in one of GSK's legacy grant systems (or are unsure), please visit the new system (see link above) and click the orange “Register” button (top right of page) to begin a search for your organization. If your organization has already been registered, you will be prompted to enter your unique user information and email address for access to the system. If you have already registered your unique user information and email address, you be notified that your email address is already in use; please see above for how to reset your password and gain access to the new system. If your organization has not already been registered, you will be prompted to enter your organization and unique user information to proceed with registration.

We will review all submitted information and render a decision to determine your eligibility to submit grants in the new system. We commit to validating organizations as quickly as possible and plan for a 1 week response (pending volume). Please consider this validation requirement in your timeline for grant submission, as organization validation is required prior to grant submission.

Please note that organization data have been migrated to the new system but historical grant data will not be completely migrated until April.
