Applications are Now Open for RWJF’s Leadership Programs

Applications are now open for four of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s leadership development programs. These programs are helping build the leaders of tomorrow—leaders who share a commitment to ensuring everyone has the opportunity to live the healthiest life possible.


rwjf-logo-1-700x238.jpgThese programs are designed to help you advance your leadership skills, and connect you with other innovators to advance big ideas and solutions.

Clinical Scholars: for clinicians from all disciplines, from occupational therapists and pharmacists to dentists and nurses.

Culture of Health Leaders: for people from all sectors—from leaders in technology and business to architects and urban planners.

Health Policy Research Scholars: for second-year doctoral students from all fields of study—from economics and political science to epidemiology and behavioral science.

Interdisciplinary Research Leaders: for researchers and community partners (e.g., organizers, advocates, leaders), particularly those working in rural health.

Participants in the programs will:

  • Receive high-caliber curriculum and coaching from national leaders.
  • Collaborate with other cutting-edge thinkers to create greater impact.
  • Accelerate their ability to build healthy communities, inform public opinion and policy, and contribute significantly to building a Culture of Health.
  • Receive funding to support their participation.

Participants work and learn from their home communities and do not need to relocate. Plus, the program is designed for people working or pursuing research full-time.

If you—or someone you know—think one of these programs might be right for you, I hope you’ll visit the individual program websites—and then go to RWJF’s funding opportunities page to apply now. (Not sure which program is right for you? Try RWJF’s ProgramFinder!)
