Healthy Eating Research Releases 2012 Call for Proposals

 

Healthy Eating Research is a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF). The program supports research on environmental and policy strategies with strong potential to promote healthy eating among children to prevent childhood obesity, especially among lower-income and racial and ethnic populations at highest risk for obesity. Findings are expected to advance RWJF’s efforts to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic by 2015.

This call for proposals (CFP) is for two types of awards aimed at providing key decision- and policy-makers with evidence to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic by 2015. The award types are: Round 7 grants and RWJF New Connections grants awarded through the Healthy Eating Research program.

 

Approximately $1.9 million will be awarded under this CFP for the two award types.

 

Round 7 Grants

  • The Round 7 grants represent the majority of RWJF’s investment in research through this program.
  • Approximately $1.7 million will be awarded through Round 7. Each grant will award up to $170,000 for a maximum funding period of 18 months.
  • Concept papers may be submitted at any time until August 9, 2012 (3 p.m. ET).

 

RWJF New Connections Grants Awarded Through Healthy Eating Research

  • These grants are to support the research of new investigators representing populations and communities historically underrepresented in childhood obesity prevention research, including researchers from underrepresented ethnic or racial minority groups and lower-income communities and those who are first-generation college graduates.
  • Up to two RWJF New Connections grants will be awarded through the Healthy Eating Research program in this round of funding. Awards will be for 12- to 18-month grants of up to $100,000 each.
  • Deadline for receipt of concept papers: May 22, 2012 (3 p.m. ET)
