Applications Open for RWJF’s Health Policy Fellows Program!

Deadline: 15 November 2017

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is seeking applications for its Health Policy Fellows program in order to provide the nation’s most comprehensive learning experience at the nexus of health, science, and policy in Washington, D.C. It is an outstanding opportunity for exceptional midcareer health professionals and behavioral and social scientists with an interest in health and health care policy.

Fellows participate in the policy process at the federal level and use that leadership experience to improve health, health care, and health policy.

Award Information

  • Up to six awards of up to $165,000 each will be made in 2018.
  • Fellowship funds of up to $104,000 may be used for the residential stay (not to exceed the fellow’s salary prior to entering the program) from September 1, 2018, through August 31, 2019.

Eligibility and Selection Criteria

  • Exceptional midcareer professionals from academic faculties, government (including military, U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs, U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, and state offices who are not considered government officials under Section 4946 of the Internal Revenue Code) and nonprofit health care organizations who are interested in experiencing the health policy process at the federal level are encouraged to apply.
  • Applicants must have earned an advanced degree in one of the following disciplines: allied health professions; biomedical sciences; dentistry; economics or other social sciences; health services organization and administration; medicine; nursing; public health; social and behavioral health; or health law.
  • Applicants whose official job description or responsibilities are primarily government relations or advocacy are not eligible to apply.
  • Applicants must be U.S. Citizens, permanent residents at the time of application, or individuals who have been granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) status by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Because Health Policy Fellows are placed in assignments in the federal government, changes in federal policy or law may necessitate that we consider adjustments in eligibility and grant terms, as well as placements in the program.
  • Individual candidates for receipt of award funds cannot be related by blood or marriage to any Officer or Trustee of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, or be a descendant of its founder, Robert Wood Johnson.
