Pioneering Ideas-Exploring the Future to Build on a Culture of Health

Pioneering Ideas: Exploring the Future to Build a Culture of Health seeks proposals that are primed to influence health equity in the future. The Foundation is interested in ideas that address any of these four areas of focus: Future of Evidence; Future of Social Interaction; Future of Food; Future of Work. RWJF welcomes proposals from scientists, anthropologists, artists, urban planners, and community leaders – anyone, anywhere who has a cutting edge idea that could alter the trajectory of health and increase opportunities for everyone in the United States to live their healthiest life possible.
While this RFP is focused on broader and longer-term societal trends and shifts that were evolving prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Foundation recognizes the unique circumstances and learning created by the COVID-19 pandemic may inform your response. It is at your discretion whether you propose a project related to the pandemic directly or indirectly.

Proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year.
