  • Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
    December 21, 2017
    At the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), we believe that everyone in America—no matter who that person is, how much money they have, or where they live—should have as much opportunity as possible to pursue a healthier life. We call that vision a Culture of Health and we work with people across the country to build a Culture of Health. Across the globe, countries are taking steps to improve health and well-being in their communities. RWJF is eager to learn from those countries. We are collaborating with people and organizations around the world to uncover insights that can inspire us all to imagine new possibilities and to surface practical solutions that can be adapted here in the United States. With this call for proposals (CFP), RWJF is looking for the best ideas from around the world that address social isolation and promote positive, healthy social connections, and well-being.

  • ABMRF The Foundation for Alcohol Research
    February 15, 2018
    The foundation encourages basic and clinical research, including epidemiology. Examples of valid topics include factors influencing underage drinking, the mechanisms of alcohol-related organ injury, fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, and the effects of alcohol on general health. Areas of particular interest include studies on how particular patterns of consumption (quantity of alcohol consumed, types of alcoholic beverages consumed, frequency of consumption, and context) are related to health and behavioral outcomes; and interdisciplinary, bioinformatics, and other approaches to genetic and environmental factors that influence the patterns of consumption of alcoholic beverages and related consequences. The foundation does not support research on treatment of complications related to advanced alcoholism. However, research involving treatment paradigms intended to elucidate the pathogenesis of alcohol-related problems will be considered. Grants are made to academic and research institutions in the United States, Canada, and South Africa, not individuals. Priority is given to projects led by young investigators, but the foundation does not support students or trainees in pre- or postdoctoral programs. Grants of up to $75,000 a year will be awarded for either one or two years. See the AMBRF/Foundation for Alcohol Research website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

  • Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
    December 31, 2018
    Evidence for Action (E4A), a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, funds research that expands the evidence base needed to build a Culture of Health. Our mission is to support rigorously designed quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research that yields convincing findings regarding the population health, well-being, and equity impacts of specific policies, programs and partnerships. We are especially interested in research examining the health impacts of programmatic or policy interventions that address factors outside the domain of health care services or public health practice. Since applications are accepted on a rolling basis, there is no deadline for submission. Generally, applicants can expect to be notified within 6-8 weeks of their LOI submission. Applicants invited to the full proposal stage will have 2 months to submit their proposal once they receive notification. Full proposal funding decisions will generally be made within 6-8 weeks of the submission deadline.
