Interdisciplinary Research Leaders – May 4

Posted by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation on March 22, 2022

We believe that leadership for health equity is an essential lever for change, especially the complex change needed to dismantle structural racism. Interdisciplinary Research Leaders (IRL) is a three-year national leadership development program that aims to foster and support new interdisciplinary, action-oriented research collaborations. Achieving health equity—especially for communities of color, those in low socioeconomic positions, and Native populations—is a core value of the program. The aim for the 2022 IRL program is to generate high-quality, community-engaged research useful for dismantling structural racism, improving health, and advancing health equity. There is an urgent need to identify solutions for eliminating and reversing the devastating effects of structural racism.

For the 2022 cohort, we will select up to 15 teams of three midcareer individuals each (two researchers and a community leader) from diverse disciplinary backgrounds or scientific perspectives. The applicant organization will receive up to $125,000 for each team’s specific research project, including $25,000 stipend per fellow per year. After the fellowship begins, funds up to $15,000 per year will be available from the national program center to the community partner’s employer, sponsoring institution, or another community organization directly involved in the research project.

Deadline to apply is May 4, 2022, 3:00 PM.
