The second round of the 2015 Children’s Prize opened Monday, July 13th.  With just under 400 proposals submitted, only a small fraction of the applicants (approximately 10%) were invited back to submit a more detailed and comprehensive application. Applicants, we recognize that each proposal is unique in its approach and merit. Therefore, we want to continue recognizing the importance of your work and dedication in ensuring that more children survive. Our team compiled funding opportunities to support your work, see the list below.

Every child health project that receives funding is an opportunity to save more lives, and that’s a win for children everywhere. We wish you all success in your future endeavors!
