Understanding how policies improve racial equity is critical to building a culture of health. Through a new call for proposals, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, under its Policies for Action program, will fund research that addresses systemic racism in public policy.
Approximately $2 million in funding is available for this opportunity, and all proposed research studies must include a plan to translate findings into actionable evidence about how, and how well, policies work to improve racial equity and racial justice.
RWJF’s Health Policy Fellows program seeks the United States’ best and brightest mid-career health professionals, behavioral and social scientists, and others interested in health and policy to join its 2021-2022 class. This non-partisan fellowship offers exclusive, hands-on experience with the most influential congressional and executive branch offices in the nation’s capital. As a fellow, you will use your expertise and front line knowledge to engage directly with members of Congress and the executive branch, and help inform the future of health care in this country.
The purpose of these awards is to help launch the careers of outstanding investigators in the field of marine microbial ecology and evolution who will advance our understanding through experiments, modeling or theory. Investigators must be currently active in research on microbial ecology and/or evolution, excluding research focusing on the microbiomes of animals or plants. Investigators with backgrounds in different fields are encouraged to apply.

The Beckman Young Investigator (BYI)
Program provides research support to the most promising young faculty members
in the early stages of their academic careers in the chemical and life
sciences, particularly to foster the invention of methods, instruments and
materials that will open up new avenues of research in science.
Projects proposed for the BYI program
should be truly innovative, high-risk, and show promise for contributing to
significant advances in chemistry and the life sciences. They should represent
a departure from current research directions rather than an extension or
expansion of existing programs. Proposed research that cuts across traditional
boundaries of scientific disciplines is encouraged. Proposals that open new
avenues of research in chemistry and life sciences by fostering the invention
of methods, instruments and materials will be given additional consideration.
- The BYI program funds promising young scientists early in their careers who have not yet received a major award from another organization. Proposals that already have substantial funding will not be considered for the BYI award (see eligibility for more information).
- Projects are normally funded for a period of four years. Grants are in the range of $600,000 over the term of the project, contingent upon demonstrated progress after the second year of the award.
- The Foundation does not provide for overhead or for indirect costs.
LOI Deadline: August 4, 2020
