About RWJF’s Leadership for Better Health Programs

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation sponsors four Leadership for Better Health programs for innovators from every sector. The goal is to engage a diverse network of leaders, researchers, and health practitioners, to continue building a Culture of Health, one in which everyone has a fair and just opportunity to achieve health and well-being. Participants receive leadership training and grant funding during their time in the program.

Here is a snapshot of who is eligible for each program:

  • Clinical Scholars – For teams of two to five health practitioners from diverse disciplines
  • Culture of Health Leaders – For individuals from all sectors and professions
  • Interdisciplinary Research Leaders – For teams of two researchers and one community partner
  • Health Policy Research Scholars – For second-year doctoral students from any discipline from underrepresented populations and/or disadvantaged backgrounds
