The latest funding cycle for New Jersey Health Foundation's Grant Programs application period has recently closed.
Faculty and staff at affiliated organizations (Kessler Foundation, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Princeton University, Rowan University, Rutgers University and Stevens Institute of Technology) are eligible to apply to the programs. Research grants are awarded to advance health-related research projects that have the potential to make a positive impact on health. Community Health and Social Service grants are awarded to health-related projects that do not fit into the criteria of the traditional Research Grant program.
Last year, grants were awarded to research projects targeting a variety of health-related areas including treatments for post traumatic stress disorder, hepatitis C, various types of cancer, concussion monitoring and bionic limbs.
Since inception, NJHF has awarded approximately $60 million in research grants to promote innovate research projects in New Jersey.
We are excited to continue our support of health related research and expand our outreach to include community health and social service projects this year. Applications received through November 13th are currently entering the review phase of the grant process.
We will be announcing the successful grant applicants in February 2021.
