Applications for the 2020 Children's Prize are now open! Apply before July 12th.

The Children’s Prize is awarded to scientifically-minded individuals with a passion for global child health and a strong commitment to verify the impact of their work. Between 2013 and 2017, the Prize has awarded over $1,700,000.00 to such individuals and organizations across the globe.


In 2014, two projects were selected as case studies to strengthen the development and more accurately determine the impact of child mortality of a Prize focused on data and scientific proof. These case studies served as real-world scenarios to help us better understand what changes needed to be made in terms of data collection and analysis, and how the Prize could be refined to best address those needs. 

Globally, 5.3 million deaths in children under the age of five occured in 2018.
