Robert Wood Johnson Foundation New Connections Call for Proposals – Round 8

Thank you to Dr. Sandra Crouse Quinn, CCHE academic collaborator and HELI faculty, for alerting us to the Robert Woods Johnson Foundation’s (RWJF) New Connections Call for Proposals!

Today, the RWJF New Connections program launches its eighth annual Call for Proposals. New Connections offers early- and mid-career researchers from historically underrepresented backgrounds funding opportunities, as well as a community of support, advice, and collaboration. They aim to give researchers from these backgrounds the necessary opportunities to impact change.

In this eighth round of call for proposals, New Connections seeks Junior Investigators and Midcareer Consultants who:

  • Have been underrepresented in RWJF research and evaluation programming activities and would be first-time grantees to RWJF.
  • Are historically underrepresented ethnic or racial minorities, first-generation college graduates (i.e., first in their immediate family to receive a college degree), or individuals from low-income communities.
  • Junior investigators are no more than ten years from the receipt of their doctorate. Junior Investigators are eligible for a two-year grant of up to $100,000.
  • Midcareer Consultants are those who have at least ten and no more than fifteen years of experience in research and/or evaluation. Midcareer Consultants are eligible for a one-year grant of up to $100,000.
