Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Scholars in Health Policy Research Program

Deadline: October 8, 2013

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) has put out a call for proposals for its Scholars in Health Policy Research program. The RWJF Research program develops and supports a new generation of creative health policy thinkers and researchers within the disciplines of economics, political science and sociology. Each year the program selects up to nine highly qualified individuals for two-year fellowships at one of three nationally prominent universities with the expectation that they will make important research contributions to future U.S. health policy.

Up to nine fellowships will be awarded in this grant cycle. Scholars will receive stipends of $89,000 each year of the two-year fellowship.

Eligibility and Selection Criteria

  • RWJF invites recent graduates of doctoral programs in economics, political science and sociology, including junior faculty, to apply.
  • Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously worked extensively in health or health policy research.
  • Applicants must have received a doctoral degree after January 1, 2009, but no later than July 15, 2014.
