Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Invites Applications for New Connections: Increasing Diversity of RWJF Programming Midcareer Consultant Program
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Invites Applications for New Connections: Increasing Diversity of RWJF Programming - Midcareer Consultant Program
New Connections: Increasing Diversity of RWJF Programming aims to expand the diversity of perspectives that inform the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's programming and introduce new researchers and scholars to RWJF, while simultaneously helping to meet staff needs for data analysis.
New Connections is a career development program designed to enhance the research capacity of scholars from underrepresented groups — ethnic or racial minority or low-income communities, first-generation college graduates (i.e., the first person in one's family to receive a college degree), or others who historically have been underrepresented in research disciplines.
The program invites midcareer consultants from historically disadvantaged and underrepresented communities to address program priorities for RWJF's teams and portfolios. These priorities include childhood obesity, healthcare coverage, human capital, public health, healthcare quality/equality, and vulnerable populations.
Midcareer Consultant program applicants must have no less than ten and no more than fifteen years of research and/or evaluation experience related to relevant health and healthcare fields; be U.S. citizens, resident non-citizen nationals, or resident foreign nationals at the time of application and not be receiving support from other research fellowships/traineeships at the time they begin the program; be from a group that has been historically underrepresented in research activities; be a first-time principal investigator/program contract grantee of RWJF; and be committed to the goals and mission of New Connections, RWJF, and its specific interest areas.
The foundation will award up to three Midcareer Consultant grants of up to $100,000 for a twelve-month period.
