New Connections: Increasing Diversity of RWJF Programming aims to expand the diversity of perspectives that inform Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) programming and introduce new researchers and scholars to RWJF, while simultaneously helping to meet staff needs for data analysis. The program invites Junior Investigators—scholars from historically disadvantaged and underrepresented communities—to submit proposals that address programming priorities for one of RWJF’s program areas.
