Robert Wood Johnson Foundation: 2017 Clinical Scholars
The Foundation is accepting applications for a three-year leadership program for clinically active health care providers and practitioners spanning a range of professions. The program provides providers with the opportunity to build and develop the unique skills they need to lead communities and organizations toward a Culture of Health. Strong applicants include a team that will bring a knowledge of and experience in the art and science of health care services, a unique perspective as providers in health and health care systems, and understand the special professional status and relationship with patients and communities. The total award to the grantee organization will be up to $105,000 per team member for the three-year fellowship program. Teams may be between two and five individuals. The size of the team may not increase during the grant term. This amount includes grant funds to support the ongoing participation for all team members for all three years, including salary support, project funding, and project travel. In keeping with RWJF policy, grant funds may not be used to support clinical trials of unapproved drugs or devices, to construct or renovate facilities, for lobbying, for political activities, or as a substitute for funds currently being used to support similar activities. The applicant must be an organization based in the United States or its territories. Applicants should have the administrative and financial capacity, as well as the experience, to accept the award and to be able to distribute funds consistent with the permitted use of funds described herein, and within the approved budget. To apply, applicant organizations must assemble an interprofessional team of two to five members representing different health professions. Teams may consist of members from within the same or across different organizations. Teams may have a history of working together or be newly formed to address the wicked problem impact project.
