Network faithful take note of an important funding opportunity for scholars from historically disadvantaged and underrepresented communities. The New Connections: Increasing Diversity of RWJF Programming aims to expand the diversity of perspectives that inform Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) programming and introduce new researchers and scholars to RWJF, while simultaneously helping to meet staff needs for data analysis. The program invites Junior Investigators—scholars from historically disadvantaged and underrepresented communities—to submit proposals that address programming priorities for one of RWJF’s program areas.
The Foundation will award up to 10 Junior Investigator grants of up to $100,000 each for a 24-month period.
New Connections Junior Investigator program applicants must:

*The New Connections program is open to applicants from any group that has been historically disadvantaged or underrepresented in research disciplines. This includes, but is not limited to, individuals from ethnic and racial minorities historically underrepresented in research disciplines. It also includes persons of all races and ethnicity who come from groups that have historically been disadvantaged or underrepresented in research disciplines, such as first-generation college graduates and people from low-income communities. These examples are intended to be illustrative, not exclusive. Applicants who do not fall within one of these categories but who believe they are from a historically disadvantaged or underrepresented background will have an opportunity to describe their individual circumstances as part of the online application process.
