Call for Applications: Robert Wood Johnson Foundation - Pioneering Ideas Brief Proposal

December 31, 2016


Amounts awarded and time periods vary widely and depend on the scope of the project. Over the last five years, we have made awards ranging from $3,000 to $23 million with time periods ranging from one month to five years. However, most grants are in the $100,000 to $300,000 range, and run from one to three years.


The Foundation welcomes “unsolicited” Pioneering Idea Brief Proposals for ideas that can help us anticipate the future and ensure we consider new and unconventional perspectives and approaches to improve health and healthcare.

The vast majority of our funding is to nonprofit organizations and public agencies. Historically, less than one percent of our funding has been to for-profit organizations, and always in instances where the institution's project is an excellent fit with our strategies and we felt they were best suited to do the work.
