grant funding program


We want to give back to the community
and we value the work that diabetes nurses and educators do.

Global Nurse/CDE Grant Funding Program

We have 3 x $3,000 grants available if you are a diabetes nurse

or educator (or similar).


For Australia (and NZ), $3k;

For Europe, $3k;

For USA (+Canada), $3k.

How to apply

The process is straightforward (10 min).

1. Enter your details;

2. Tell us how you’d like to invest the $3,000 grant (it can be anything related to investing in the community or your education or conference) — we like stories, so tell us yours;

3. It can also be a submission for a colleague who you believe deserves the grant;


4. It can also be a submission for a clinic; it doesn’t have to be one individual.

Three winners will be announced in December (2023).

    Not Just a Patch

    Not Just a Patch are CGM Patches designed to give you more confidence while wearing your diabetic devices.

    My name is Pete, and I’m the founder of “Not Just a Patch.” I’m a person with Type 1 Diabetes. “Not Just a Patch” is more than just a great patch; it’s about making your life a little easier, giving you more confidence while wearing your sensor, having some fun with self-expression, and giving back to support those less fortunate. 

    We donate 10% of our profits to diabetes-related charities. And focus our support on helping those who lack affordable access to insulin – and offering annual grants to diabetes nursing and educators for their work that contributes to the health and well-being of people with Type 1 Diabetes.


    Let us know which of our range of patches you’d like; you can check the patch range here.

    We’ll send them directly to your address.

    All applicants for the Diabetes Grant Funding Program get samples sent out 🙂
