RWJF Grants for Early Career Scholars

New Connections: Increasing Diversity of RWJF Programming is celebrating its 10th year of supporting research grants and career development opportunities for a network of more than 830 researchers from diverse, underrepresented, and disadvantaged backgrounds. The program aims to expand the diversity of perspectives that inform Robert Wood Johnson Foundation programming and introduce new researchers to the foundation to help address research and evaluation needs.

Through grant-making, mentorship, career developments, and networking, the program enhances the research capacity of its grantees and network members. The researchers in this 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.
