Research Grants

New Jersey Health Foundation's Research Grants Program funds research projects that demonstrate exciting potential and help researchers qualify for larger grants from other organizations to advance their research. See the sections below and the attached PDF documents for more information. The 2020 research grant cycle begins September 16, 2020. View Policies and Procedures for this program here.

NEW THIS YEAR
Community Health and Social Service Grants

To address an unmet need for grants to support projects focused on community health and social service issues, the Foundation has expanded its program to add a segment for Community Health and Social Service Grants.  These grants will be up to $25,000 each for projects addressing important health-related community and social issues impacting society.  Separate guidelines will be provided at a later date for these grants and these applications will be reviewed and evaluated using separate criteria. View Policies and Procedures for this program here.

Field(s) of Research:
