Call for Proposals: Pioneering Ideas Open Ideas

October 15, 2018


For this funding opportunity, we generally fund projects within the $150,000-$350,000 budget range and with a project term of between 12-36 months.


We review these applications on a rolling basis. Please allow up to eight weeks for a response.


Through this, our signature Pioneering Ideas funding opportunity, we seek to explore how cutting-edge ideas and emerging trends could help or hinder our progress toward a Culture of Health.

We’re open to ideas on a range of topics, from emerging technologies to pioneering strategies for changing norms and behaviors. We’re interested in funding a number of different project types, including research, pilots or demonstration projects, idea sourcing, network or coalition building, and more. Ultimately, we are looking for projects that bring new understanding and raise new questions about the future of health in the United States.


This open call for ideas is part of the Pioneering Ideas Brief Proposals funding opportunity at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. To learn more and submit an idea, please visit the proposal webpage.
