Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health Policy Research Scholars

Health Policy Research Scholars is a national leadership program for second-year doctoral students in any academic discipline who want to apply their research to help build healthier and more equitable communities.

This is a leadership program for doctoral students from historically underrepresented populations, whose backgrounds allow them to bring unique and crucial perspectives to their research. Scholars in this program come from diverse disciplines: political science, economics, psychology, transportation, and many others. Although their fields of study vary, what our scholars share is a commitment to applying their research to advance health and equity.

Each fellow in our program receives up to $30,000 per year for up to four years to support their participation in the program.
