Funding Opportunity: Increasing Diversity in Research, Evaluation
New Connections, a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) national program that aims to expand the diversity and introduce new researchers and scolars to the RWJF, has isssued a new call for proposals.
The program is inviting “Mid-career Consultants”—scholars from historically disadvantaged and underrepresented communities who have 10-15 years of research and/or evaluation experience—to conduct research and evaluation for RWJF’s teams and portfolios.
The program also is inviting “Junior Investigators”—scholars from historically disadvantaged and underrepresented communities—to submit proposals that address programming priorities for one of RWJF’s program areas.
Those interested in applying to be a junior investigator, go here.
Those interested in applying as a mid-career consultant, go here.
May 5, 2011, is the deadline for receipt of brief proposals for both.
