Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
Program to Increase Diversity Across Its Programming
Deadline: May 16, 2017
Award Ceiling: $50,000
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has issued a Request for Proposals for an annual initiative to increase diversity across its research network and programming.
Now in its eleventh year, New Connections: Increasing Diversity of RWJF Programming, a career development program for early-career researchers, is designed to expand the diversity of perspectives that inform RWJF programming and introduce new researchers to the foundation to help address research and evaluation needs. Through grantmaking, mentorship, career development and networking, New Connections enhances the research capacity of its grantees and network members. The researchers in the program transcend disciplines (health, health care, social sciences, business, urban planning, architecture and engineering); work to build the case for a Culture of Health with strong qualitative and quantitative research skills; and produce and translate timely research results.
