Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Pioneering Ideas Brief Proposals
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Pioneer Portfolio accepts unsolicited proposals for projects that pursue innovative approaches to solving problems in health and healthcare. To receive a fair and comprehensive review from the Foundation, all proposals must address the strategic objectives of the Pioneer portfolio and fall within the guidelines of the types of proposals that they fund.
Shared themes and characteristics of the most promising unsolicited proposals include:
- Challenge assumptions or long-held cultural practices
- Take an existing idea and give it a new spin—or a novel application
- Offer a new take or perspective on a long-running, perplexing problem
- Apply cutting-edge ideas from other fields to health
- Explore the potential for emerging trends to impact the ability to build a Culture of Health
Amounts awarded and time periods vary widely and depend on the scope of the project. Over the last 5 years, awards have ranged from $1,200 to $50,000,000 with project periods ranging from one month to 5 years. Most grants are in the $100,000 to $300,000 range, and run from 1-3 years.
