Health Policy Research Scholars

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation


Health Policy Research Scholars is a national leadership development program for first-or-second-year doctoral students in any academic discipline who want to apply their research to help build healthier and more equitable communities.  We need far greater diversity in future generations of researchers and policymakers. With more voices in the conversation, policies and solutions can be more inclusive and relevant to a broader range of communities. That’s why we intentionally designed Health Policy Research Scholars for students from underrepresented populations and/or disadvantaged backgrounds—students whose ethnicity, socioeconomic status, ability and other factors allow them to bring unique and diverse perspectives to their research.  Our scholars gain access to the tools, insights and diversity of mentors needed to accelerate and distinguish their research. And because we know that pursuing a graduate degree is intense and time-consuming in and of itself, we provide an annual stipend to give our scholars added research funds, or simply greater financial stability.   Alumni from this program will carry the unique distinction of being a graduate of a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation leadership program and become a part of a tightly knit network of visionary change agents across sectors and disciplines.

Interdisciplinary Research Leaders Program

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation


Over the course of the program, our fellows build their leadership skills and collaborate across sectors and disciplines. They gain a wealth of new information, perspectives and experiences that leave them feeling refreshed and inspired, with skills to apply immediately in their work. For the community partners, that means customized research and additional resources to support the work they are already doing. For the researchers, it’s an opportunity to make a more immediate and informed impact on their community. And with accompanying funding for fellows’ current work—or a new project they’ve dreamed of pursuing—the entire community benefits.

Each annual class of fellows addresses one of two themes through their leadership training and project work. The cohort applying now (to begin in fall 2017) will focus on “youth development approaches for the prevention of violence and promotion of health” and “community and individual resilience and health.”

Within these themes, the Interdisciplinary Research Leaders Fellows help build bridges between valuable research and the communities that need it most. Representing many disciplines and backgrounds, they are able to consider all the factors that impact health—education, neighborhoods, transportation, income, faith and more.   Alumni from this program will carry the unique distinction of being a graduate of a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation leadership program and become a part of a tightly knit network of visionary change agents across sectors and disciplines.

Culture of Health Leaders

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation


Culture of Health Leaders are people working in every field and profession who want to use their influence to advance a Culture of Health—one that enables everyone in America to live longer, healthier lives.  This kind of leader isn’t defined by a fancy title or a corner office. They’re working on the ground, applying their skills and experience to solve urgent issues that impact their community and beyond. They get their hands dirty—running a business, leading a nonprofit, building things. No matter what barriers they encounter, they find a way to get the work done.


Culture of Health Leaders is a national leadership development program for this kind of person. Our current cohort of leaders comes from fields as diverse as architecture, education, urban farming, the arts and many others. As we bring on new leaders, we’re looking for even broader representation from every field and profession across the private, public, nonprofit and social enterprise sectors.  Designed to expand and amplify the tremendous experience these leaders already possess, Culture of Health Leaders offers intensive learning opportunities with some of today’s foremost health and equity experts, connects them with a new, larger network of like-minded change agents, and provides an opportunity to rejuvenate by taking a small step back from their day-to-day work.   Alumni from this program will carry the unique distinction of being a graduate of a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation leadership program and become a part of a tightly knit network of visionary change agents across sectors and disciplines.

Working in collaboration throughout the three-year program, they will take these important skills and apply them in their jobs and through a project in their community that directly addresses the root causes of inequity in health.  Alumni from this program will carry the unique distinction of being a graduate of a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation leadership program and become a part of a tightly knit network of visionary change agents across sectors and disciplines.
