Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is desired to invite applications for Investigator-Initiated research to build a culture of health. Investigator-Initiated Research to Build a Culture of Health is a national program of RWJF that supports the Foundation’s commitment to building a Culture of Health in the United States. The program aims to provide individuals, organizations, communities, policymakers, and researchers with the empirical evidence needed to address the key determinants of health encompassed in the Culture of Health Action Framework
Approximately $2.2 million will be awarded annually. We expect to fund between five and 12 grants each year for periods of up to 30 months.
