The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s New Connections: Increasing Diversity of RWJF Programming aims to expand diversity of perspectives that inform RWJF programming and introduce new researchers and scholars to the Foundation to help address research and evaluation needs.
New Connections is a career development program for early- and mid career researchers from underrepresented groups. The program invites junior investigators to address priorities related to RWJF’s program areas; this round of funding will focus on research projects addressing health disparities. RWJF will award up to nine junior investigator grants of up to $100,000 for a 24-month period.
