GRANT PROGRAMS ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 21, 2020
New Jersey Health Foundation (NJHF) has recently announced that the latest funding cycle for its grant programs will be accepting applications beginning September 21, 2020. 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. Research grants will be awarded to advance health-related research projects that have the potential to make a positive impact on health. Community Health and Social Service grants will also be awarded this year to include 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.
