About the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) is the nation’s largest philanthropy dedicated solely to health. Since 1972, they’ve supported research and programs targeting some of America’s most pressing health issues—from substance abuse to improving access to quality health care. And they have witnessed great progress. But they have also noticed that the nation has worked to improve health by focusing primarily on the health care system—when in fact, people’s health is influenced significantly by where they live, learn, work, and play. And time and time again, they have come to recognize that no matter the issue, no single organization or sector can change the trajectory of America’s health alone. By working alongside many others, they can bring about meaningful change, now and for generations to come.
About the Program
This three-year national leadership development program aims to foster and support new interdisciplinary, action-oriented research collaborations. Leaders selected for this program will generate high-quality, community-engaged research useful for dismantling structural racism and improving health and health equity. For this cohort, up to 15 teams of three mid-career individuals each (two researchers and a community partner) from diverse disciplinary backgrounds or scientific perspectives will be selected.
Applications are due May 5, 2021.
