Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholars Program

Deadline: October 3,  2008

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholars program is designed to help build the nation’s capacity for research, leadership, and policy change in regard to the multiple determinants of population health. The program’s goal is to improve health by training scholars to: investigate the connections among biological, genetic, behavioral, environmental, economic, and social determinants of health; and develop, evaluate, and disseminate knowledge and interventions that integrate and act on these determinants to improve health. To be eligible, scholars must have completed doctoral training by the time of entry into the two-year program (August or September 2009) in one of a variety of fields, have significant research experience; clearly connect their research interests to substantive population health concerns; and be citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. or its territories. Up to eighteen scholars will be selected to begin training in August or September 2009 at various sites across the nation. Scholars will receive an annual stipend of $86,000 in year one and $89,000 in year two of the program.
